You the picture is showing that you are not creating the project properly and you need to create the project properly. There are the following steps you need to follow to create the proper project in visual studio:

1. Open Visual Studio

2. Go to create new project

3. Select the project 

4. Write the name of the project

5. Describe the place where you want to save your project.

6. After doing this the project will save and editor will open so write your own code and run debug and do whatever you want.

This is the way to create the project in the visual studio. If you want to work in C++ then you should choose the console the application.

The dialog you are seeing is the Security Warning which may appear when you create a project. The dialog may appear when you open a project that has been downloaded from the internet. You may also receive this dialog when you create a new project or open an existing project using a UNC path or the Universal Naming Convention path.

If you don’t want to see this dialog or you want to prevent this dialog from appearing in the future, in Microsoft Visual Studio, go to “Tools” and then “Options.” On the next screen, select “Show all settings.” Under “Projects and Solutions,” select “General” then uncheck “Warn user when the project location is not trusted.” This should fix the problem.

A UNC path, by default, is not a trusted location for a project. Another way to prevent the Security Warning is to move the project to a trusted location that you can reference without using a UNC path.
