Console Application Template 

The Console Application project template adds the necessary items needed to create a console application. Console applications are typically designed without a graphical user interface and are compiled into a stand-alone executable file. A console application is run from the command line with input and output information being exchanged between the command prompt and the running application. Because information can be written to and read from the console window, this makes the console application a great way to learn new programming techniques without having to be concerned with the user interface.

The template automatically adds the essential project references and files to use as a starting point for your application.
