Is there an easier way of finding cpp executable in visual studio?

I’ve started programming in c++ and I recently switched from a text editor to visual studio’s ide, and I found out how to compile a single hello world. But it takes a bit to actually find the executable which is in a mess of folders full of a bunch of different files.

Is there just an easier way to find the file? Or change where the file is compiled at?

>Solution :

In visual Studio (not code), go to the Project menu, then to <Project_name> properties. In the popup window go to Configuration properties/General, you will find the output directory.

Plan B: when building your solution, the full path of the exe is displayed in the console output.
