Are you referencing the New File button in OnlineGDB? If so, it allows you to create new files from a range of file types.

You could create new header files that store user-defined functions for C/C++ code. Alternatively, you could create a text file which you read and write too etc.

so, how do you use these extra files if you can only run the main one?

You can use them the way you want.

As LiOS said, you can include additional header files in C/C++ projects.

Or you can put source code in them and the compiler will compile those codes.

Or you create a file, that is your data file (e.g. contains save information for your game) and you can read/write that file.
