It's really not hard. File -> New -> Project; in Project Types pick Win32 under Visual C++.
What happens next depends on what kind of project you want. Given that your ability is such that you can't find File New Project, I suggest starting with the template Win32 Console Application.
Give it a name and location, it will create a basic project that you can build and run (maybe after adding a line to display Hello World) using the cunningly named menu Build -> Build Solution. After building, fix any compile errors, then use the menu Debug -> Start Without Debugging to run the program.
