But surely you'll have VS installed anyway? I don't see the issue? Like others have said though, in terms of "quick" I'll use console apps, especially if trying to develop an algorithm or something. If even that is too much for me, some days I'll just copy and paste my task onto a web forum and ask someone else to give the codes.
An InteractiveFunction requires user input so it runs in the primary thread. A StandardFunction does not require input and is run in a worker thread context. I've been using this for several years now and it's pretty handy. I occasionally prune things back because the menu gets too full of testing snippets, several of which originated from questions here.

'MyProgs' program directory contains all of my own programming work on my computer. (It is a sub of 'Programs', which contains all the programming work on my computer.) It has a 'Junk' folder which contains a few different types of bare-bones projects (console, Windows, etc.), that can have the code added to them to play with. I just open the appropriate one in a new Visual Studio session and start playing with the code. If it is a complete program like comes with many of the articles here, it gets tossed into a sub off of 'Programs\Others Programs', extracted, and ran as-is.
Just use the REPL if the language has one, VSCode + compiler in the Code's integrated terminal if the language doesn't have one. That covers the main languages I might want to play with (Haskell, Python, OCaml, C++ or Rust in my case).
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
I am glad I am not the only one. I have a semi console app.
I call it something like sortingmultidemi because the first time I used it was like 30 years ago and I was sorting a mutli dimensional array and I wanted to see the outcome.
It now has more commented code than working code. but I take it everywhere. Copy Paste alot out of it. Lots of examples of things. and for some reason quicker than google when searching for something I have done before.
To err is human to really mess up you need a computer
Set up a simple NUnit test project and just drop all of them there.
But if you are testing something your team is doing I'm questioning their unit testing practices.

Small bits of .net: linqpad
Larger bits of .net: Rider + .net core, perhaps a unit test assembly for checking out an API or idea.
If you say that getting the money is the most important thing
You will spend your life completely wasting your time
You will be doing things you don't like doing
In order to go on living
That is, to go on doing things you don't like doing
