Making exe file out of c++ code

Ok, I have the program Dev-c++.  I am just starting to learn c++.  How do you make a source file into an exe file?  This should be pretty easy.  I looked through the documentation and couldnt find it.

It is quiet easy.
-Launch Dev C++
-Select File -> new -> project
-A dialog will appear. Select 'empty project' and click OK
-Choose a filename for your project and clik OK
-Project is created, now select File -> New -> Source file
-You will be prompted to add the file to project, select YES
-Now past your code into the empty file or copy the above sample code
-Now select Run -> Compile, there wouldn't be errors.
-Exe file is created, select Run -> Run, and that's all

Sample program:
#include "stdio.h"
#include "stdlib.h"

int main()
{
   printf ("Hello, world!\n");
   system ("pause");
   return 0;  
}

Follow the above intructions, Your EXE file will be put whereever your source code was saved, so compile the code, then look in te directory or folder where your source code for that project is.
