Getting Started with Visual Studio

You can use Visual Studio to build many different kinds of apps: Windows Store apps, Windows Phone apps (and Universal apps, which target both the Phone and Windows Store), desktop apps, web apps, and web services. You can write code in Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual C++, Visual F#, and JavaScript, as well as apps that can use code in different languages.
