First you need to create a project for your file. Click on the File menu, then New. This dialog should appear:
Make sure the Projects tab is open and Win32 Console Application is selected (for text-based programs) or Win32 Application (for visual programs). Give your project a name, click OK and choose a blank workspace.
Go back to File | New and this time the Files tab should be open. Select C++ File, give it a name as well, and click OK. Now you should be ready to program.
