why do professionals code c++ in visual studio code?

when i tried using visual studio code, it doesn't have the option to compile your program. i searched the web and found some tutorials to compile it on VS but it's pretty complicated and i find that compiling straight to the terminal is much simpler. why do people want to waste time on VS when they can use something like dev c++ instead where it automatically compiles your program into an .exe format and runs it on the terminal?

Professionals don't use Visual Studio Code to write C++ on Windows. They use Visual Studio. Which is much more similar to Dev C++ and has a one click compile. Visual Studio Code is generally used on Linux, or for other programming languages (I use it for Go and HTML/CSS/JS). VSC is basically a better version of Notepad: it provides syntax hilighting, warnings (with extension), multiple files and so on, but it does not have a compiler or debugger or make system or anything like that, because if you use VSC you already have that part set up. TL;DR: You got the wrong program. Get Visual Studio and try again.
