*   Windows Explorer

 

Windows Explorer is a program that allows you to do various files and disk management tasks like Copy, Move, Delete files, etc. It is the quickest way to get a complete view of the contents of your computer and see which files are lying where. (See Figure 5.3.8)    

 

 

 

*   To access Your Windows Explorer

  • Click on Start.
  • Click on Programs.
  • Click on Windows Explorer.

 

The structure of Windows Explorer ran be compared to a filing cabinet with filing drawers which in turn contain folders inside it. This concept is represented in the Explorer with an inverted "tree" type of appearance where directories stem out from the main drives and files stem out from directories. (See Figure 5.3.9)  

 

 

 

On the left side of your Explorer window are the folders in your chosen drive. The Explorer view begins with Desktop, followed by My Computer, and lists all your drives, followed by other folders or programs contained within the Desktop and My Computer. Your directory structure is indicated by the indentation levels in Explorer's left pane. On the right side are the files and folders that are contained within the folder you select at the left. Your selected folder appears to be open, with its contents spilling out into the right panel. A minus sign on a folder means that it is fully expanded. A plus sign on a folder means that it contains more files inside which are not currently visible. When you want to see details of your files (i.e. size, date created/modified), click on 'View' -> 'Details'. When you just want to see a list of files, click on 'View' -> list'.
