Publish a Site in Visual Studio Express 2012


I am trying to publish a web application project in Visual Studio Express 2012.
What I always do is publish to a file location then use Filezilla to ftp my site to my web hosting provide
As shown in the image there seems to be no option to post to a file location
I am pulled through to a screen that wants me to sign into my Microsoft account.
I would really just like to publish to a file location on my computer
