Visual Studio Samples
Visual Studio samples are located on the MSDN Code Gallery website, together with other sample applications, code snippets, and resources from the developer community. You can also use the New Project dialog box to browse for samples. (To open the dialog box, on the menu bar, choose File, New, Project.)
You can also access video tutorials—on the menu bar, choose Help, How-To Videos (Streaming).
Here's where to look for other samples.
