I presume you want to write your code in notepad? That's fine. Let's do a very simple example.

1. Create a file with notepad called main.cpp
2. Add the following code

#include
int main()
{
    std::cout << "hello, world" << std::endl;
}

3. Save the file
4. Leave notepad open and go to a command shell
5. Change to the directory your main.cpp lives in
6. Type the following command

g++ -o myprog main.cpp

7. This will create a binary called "myprog" - try running it

If you need to change anything go back to the notepad window, edit and save then repeat step 6

Notepad++ is a nice editor. The classical way explained by evilrix so perfect can be even a bit easier (if it is possible :)) with Notepad++. Take a look:

So it's about item 4 in evilrix's comment only.

try the following may solve the issue,

goto plugins -> nppexec -> execute

Use the  gcc/g++ executable there.
