First decide what you want

First decide what you want to learn how to do - you have to learn a programming language, and they are all suited to different things.

A generally good place to start is to look at 'proper' programming is BASIC, there are loads of resources on this and all these on the internet. This can do simple calculations, etc.

If you want to make Windows do things, like rename files, open software etc, try AutoIt. This is good as it uses parts of Windows to do things - if you use C or BASIC to do things like rename a file, it is very complex - AutoIt has all these things built in.

If you want to get a good feel for how computers work internally, and perform lots of calculations in an efficient way, for instance for making simulations of things, have a look at C or C++.

That's probably a good start...

What were you thinking of doing with your programs?

That's
