I've been looking for a tutorial that tells you how to make a menu (like the one in the top-left corner that says file and such) and I can't find any good tutorial anywhere. I've looked all over and either the tutorial is so computer-tech language that I can't understand it or it doesn't provide all the code to use (I'm a visual person, I have to see it to fully understand :/)

Could someone please direct me to a good tutorial that is easy to understand. One wouldn't think a menu was so difficult...
Especially coming from BASIC...

You could try TheForger's tutorials...
PS: Won't work if you're using Dev-C++, at least it didn't too me.

Yeah I'm using Dev... However I found an existing document in the examples that makes a menu. I'm trying to figure out what the heck is happening though...

I would advice you to just skip that example! Just took a look at it, and it seems it's using some .rc (resource files) and .h (header files) together with some quite heavy winapi - at least for beginners!
Before you use that one, I'll advice you to go through some of the winapi-tutorials from TheForger (link in my previous post), it should give you a better understanding of the different elements in the code.
Good luck! :)
