Navigating Through the Explorer Hierarchy

With the help of Windows Explorer, it's easy to display the contents of any drive or folder. When you click on an icon in the All Folders pane, the contents of that folder appear in the right pane.

By default, each branch of the tree-style listing in the All Folders pane is collapsed when you first open the two-pane Explorer view; all you see are the top-level icons for drives and system folders. A plus sign to the left of an icon means additional folders are beneath it. Click the plus sign to expand that branch and see additional folders. When you expand the folder listing, the plus sign becomes a minus sign. Click the minus sign to collapse that branch again. Figure 6.5 shows a typical display with the contents of the Accessories folder visible in the right pane.
