"right click on your combo box from the resource editor and go to the properties under data is says
'enter listbox items'."->Put your data then click on the down button of your combo box->enlarge the vertical size of your combo box's pulldown list

Tip:
When adding a combo box control to the window, it is important that you click and drag the area for the control as large as you want the drop-down list to be. After you draw the control on the window, you can resize the width of the control as you would normally expect to do. To resize how far the list drops down you need to click the arrow, as if you were trying to trigger the drop-down list while the application was running.

...and remember, the "enter listbox items" does not work in in Win32- and ATL projects

"is there anyway to set the default value from the rs editor?"->Yes. Open the properties dialog for the combo box that you placed on the window. On the Data tab of the properties dialog, enter the values, using a Control+Enter key combination to add the second and third items...
