    http://winprog.org/tutorial/ is an excellent tutorial for beginners. Most people on the board have started there, including myself.
    Code:
    void function(void)
     {
      function();
     }

    IMHO the only way to learn it and understand it at all is through: Charlez Petzolds Programming Windows book.

    To remember all the stuff that I read I have to just use it.
    I dont know your knowledge level, but you might just as well start programming until you get stuck somewhere. Then you can use a book as reference.

    This is how i started, and i now have a little app which is 10k lines, and its still getting bigger.

    Well some people like to read it in a book. For me its easier to read then online and this book tells you EVERYTHIng like history and reasons not to do certain things etc... I just really like it thats all.
