No .exe is being created with my stuff

I've got NotePad++ set up real nice and it's working good with Java and C++ for the most part, but what I don't understand is that when I run my .cpp file the code runs fine and I get the output in the window but there is no .exe file being created.

I'm using minGW as my compiler.

Unless this file is being stored in some other folder besides my projects folder. And sometimes I see a prog file being created which is an application file, and I think that is a sort of .exe file?

Confused I am. I would like to figure out where my .exe files are going.

Re: No .exe is being created with my stuff

Here is the line of info which I think is responsible for this. I copied it off a site and now that I look at it I see the prog thing and I think that's why. But is there a way to change it so it makes a good old fashioned .exe?

NPP_SAVE
CD $(CURRENT_DIRECTORY)
C:\MinGW\bin\g++.exe -g "$(FILE_NAME)" -o prog.exe
prog.exe
