Any good IDE or Editor for ASP.NET MVC

I'm new to MVC. Is there any IDE or Editor for ASP.NET that could help me to layout or design this cshtml page. I don't mean about dragging and dropping controls, but allow me to know where to edit and change.

I read about DevExpress and Rich Text Editor. DevExpress is too expensive and with Rich Text Editor I get lost whit their instructions.

As you see, this cshtml is calling many jquery files and css files. If I want to change something (a textbox , some message, etc) inside this cshtml, how could I do?
Could I use some Editor or IDE for MVC that will allow me to see where to change?
Or should I guess which jquery files or css files are the ones that I should modify?
How should I proceed?

Why not use Visual Studio Express?

https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/products/visual-studio-express-vs.aspx

It's free and designed by Microsoft just for this purpose.

What is the difference with Visual Studio Community?
Visual Studio 2013 Community doesn't help too much. Just pressing F5 to see how is getting the html page.

For HTML part, you can design your page in any HTML editor and paste that content into your cshtml page. Basically cshtml itself is a html page which can contains the c# scripts (known as cs)

Visual Studio is not good for design purpose! However you can design it in your current VS using following steps:
1. Right Click on that cshtml page
2. Select "Open With...", it will open dialog box to select program
3. Select "HTML (Web Form) Editor" OR "HTML (Web Form) Editor with Encoding"
4. Click OK.

It will open Page in Source mode, and you will find the Design mode at the bottom of the page!

Remember, Visual Studio is not meant for Design, so bare with this!
