    WebMatrix doesn't support that. It is a web development tool and only supports developing web sites.

    WebMatrix is a free, lightweight, cloud-connected web development tool

    According to Microsoft.

    Sure you can write a program, easier to do it in a site (empty site, or starter site).

    If you want to write a single program, I suggest to use Visual Studio Express Edition. It's free like Webmatrix and you can write any kind of programs.

    Yes, you can surely edit your web pages in WebMatrix to make a new program, or to edit any previously existing file. Just open it in WebMatrix, and you'll be good to go. As already has been suggested you should use Visual Studio.

    Hello,

    In WebMatrix, you need to create a website, but it does not mean that you need to make a full web site. 

    Just create a page, and use it as user interface. You can use other pages, helpers and functions to perform your task..
