Hour 5. Navigating Files with Windows Ex... > Introducing the Windows Explorer

Introducing the Windows Explorer

Often, Windows users call the Windows Explorer program just Explorer. You'll find Explorer listed on the Start menu system. Click the Start button to display the Start menu. Select More Programs, Accessories, and then select Windows Explorer. (Do not select Internet Explorer as that's your Internet browser.) The Windows Explorer window opens to look like the one shown in Figure 5.1. By default, Explorer opens to your My Documents folder located on your Windows disk drive. Your Explorer window might look somewhat different from the one in the figure. As Figure 5.1 shows, you can make Explorer point to any drive and folder, including a My Documents folder on a non-Windows drive if one exists. Simply type the location you wish to view in the Address bar.

Figure 5.1. Explorer's opening window shows folders and files.
