Yes. I use it for both C and C++ programs.I will take Intro to C programming this semester and can I use MVS for coding C ?
İnstructor shared a link for to run C in MinGW. But I couldnt download it from there cause its too complex .I haven't heard of anyone having something go wrong when they downloaded Vis. Studio.

"After installation you will need to perform some additional tasks yourself to ensure your MinGW applications will run. Most importantly, you will need to make changes to your PATH environment variable. Be careful: there are two PATH variables which can be changed, and changing the wrong one can have significant consequences. Instructions for changing the correct PATH variable are provided below."
And many more warnings etc. I guess theres no such needs in MVS
I installed VC++ because I wanted to see how easy it was to set up but I can't get it to work right either. For example, I tried to #include <stdio.h>; and it complains, but #include <cstdio>; doesn't.
Assuming that you have installed the Visual C++ redistributable for Visual Studio 2017, you can create "New Project" > "Visual C++" > "Win32 Console Application" >"Next" > "Console Application" and "Empty Project". Now, click "Finish" and add a new source file from the relevant menu and give your source file name the .c extension, ignoring the options displayed. Hope this helps.
As for <cstdio>, it includes <stdio.h> and adds the associated names to the std namespace. Here's the relevant Microsoft web page.
Once you have loaded your project in VS, open Solution Explorer, if you don't already have that as a pane that is showing. To open the Solution Explorer pane, under View, click Solution Explorer.@Mark44, can you elaborate on what settings need to change to enable C in the most compatible way possible? Thanks.
Just FYI, C coding is what MVS started with and it has never been left out. As for installations, I've installed many versions on several different machines and have never had the least bit of problem. It's really wonderful that MS now gives away the full version to individuals. I've paid out quite a bit for versions over the years (I've been using it from the beginning) and I was delighted when I found that it's now free.I will take Intro to C programming this semester and can I use MVS for coding C ?
