Where to start?

Hi friends,
I'm a newbie here. I don't know 'm asking this in the right place.
I am now almost familiar with c++ console programs (classes, array, pointers etc). I like to develop Windows programs. So where should I start?
Start by reading a book on Windows programming or some online tutorial(s).

An old one but good one is @ http://www.winprog.org , but a word of advice: Since it is OLD, it assumes all projects work under the ANSI configuration. If you are using Visual Studio you'll find that it defaults to the UNICODE configuration.

You should therefore read a bit about ANSI and UNICODE builds in MSDN. In general, you should read http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee663266(v=vs.85).aspx .
I've posted some material here, including a relatively painless introduction to the ansi/unicode issue ...
