Visual Studio Express 2019 is a very popular Integrated Development Environment (IDE) package from Microsoft built to be a lightweight alternative to the full package of the app. The toolset of this software is a little smaller than the full IDE packages, but all the necessary features are present in it to create both native Windows applications and Windows 8 Metro-Style applications.

Visual Studio Express Edition is one of the most popular platforms designed for passionate programmers. It can be used to develop desktop apps, Metro style programs and hardware drivers.

The GUI looks very familiar for users with plenty of experience in the programming department, but rookies are likely to experience headaches when opening this application.

“Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.” Rich Cook

Because of the ease of use, smaller toolset, and the great capabilities for the creation of applications of all shapes and sizes, Microsoft recommends the app for students, home users, hobbyists, and intermediate users who want to expand their knowledge. Programming language support that is present in Visual Studio Express covers five popular languages – Visual Basic Express, Visual C++ Express, Visual C# Express, Visual Web Developer Express, and Express for Windows Phone. The entire process of creating new applications is set inside a highly streamlined dashboard that promotes the most useful tools in the easy-to-reach positions on your screen, enabling faster coding, application management, and an increase of daily productivity.

Visual Studio Express Edition comes with features like multi-monitor support (so you can drag and drop documents from one monitor to another), zoom (in editors or diagrams), navigation (through files, code, variables and methods more efficient than the common search function), as well as Intelli-sense (Visual Studio’s intuitive feature that simplifies your coding experience).

You can find C++ and MFC features, multi-targeting support, F# integration, as well as easily create Windows Presentation Framework (WPF) applications without having to code in XAML.

So, you can create individual web applications (that can be deployed by using the One Click Publish feature), and design amazing Silverlight applications for a website.
