I just installed Visual Studio 2013 Express on Windows 8 but can't seem to find it.
When I look in my control Panel I see the files shown in the image below

What does 'can't find it' mean?
No menu/desktop shortcut? An error when you click to start it ?

ps.  That picture shows VS 2013 for web as an installed program - is that what you want to start.

Hi

try to search for 'express'  or look into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 13.0\Common7\IDE and open VSWinExpress.exe  \  (professional)  devenv.exe.

On my (Win 7) system there is a Program Files (x86) folder on drive c.  Within that there will be a folder called something like Microsoft Visual Studio 13  Within that I have a Common7 folder which has a further IDE folder.  Inside that is devenv.exe.  This should be the file you need to start (create a link/menu item for)

Hi

Sorry it should be read as 12 instead of 13

try to search for 'express'  or look into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE and open VSWinExpress.exe  \  (professional)  devenv.exe.

ps.  I have a pro edition of an earlier version on a different windows version.  You might need to search for another exe file and experiment a little should that (devenv.exe) not be on your system.
