    Assuming Windows XP, you quite a few options. Here are some of the popular ones:

    • Learn the Windows API. This is the defacto standard for online Windows API tutorials.
    • Learn MFC. MFC is a collection of C++ classes that wrap the Windows API.
    • Learn a GUI toolkit that supports Windows. The following are portable GUI toolkits (afaik they cover most operating systems):
      • wxWidgets (I recommend this one.)
      • GTK+
      • Qt


    For a more complete list of GUI toolkits:

    Please remember, however, that GUI programming is considered somewhat advanced. You should be well grounded in C++ before you attempt full projects with full fledged GUIs. This is because knowledge and familiarity of pointers, including function pointers and callbacks, memory management, threads, and other such items are expected right away in some cases.
