finding the right forum

I get to this web page:
The forums selection box shows two headings:
Using Forums
And nothing else. I repeat: Nothing else.
There is a never ending list of archived forums, but nothing else.

Where should I go to find the Visual Studio forums?

A high-level, general-purpose programming language, created as an extension of the C programming language, that has object-oriented, generic, and functional features in addition to facilities for low-level memory manipulation.

    Why should I go to an "archived" forum?
    Where are the active forums?

    You can find VS forum tags by editing tags. C++ tag is used for C++ programming problems.

    Hello welcome,
    you are in the correct forums already. Your link shows mostly old archived forums - these pages have moved to here. Nevertheless you can search for answers there. But if you want to ask a new question, you should post it here.
    Regards, Guido

    Guido Franzke: I will post here.
    Still, when the drop down states Archives, it clearly indicates that the items under that header are archived, which means not currently actively.
    Thanks for your time.
