If you want simple IDE I suggest you to pick Notepad++(free) or Sublime Text(you can evaluate it as long as you want).
Bregma is right! You should play with Visual Studio(or Xcode, Netbeans, Eclipse, wateva). It's normal to be confused first 1-2 weeks. But after that you will adore all the features in it, I promoise! Don't be afraid! After all, it is only a White rectangle with some text (and a spinning rainbow in XCode).
I find Xcode extreamly confusing, but if you read carefully everything will be fine
