File Explorer

Called Windows Explorer in previous versions of Windows, File Explorer has been redesigned with a Ribbon interface, similiar to the one found in Word 2010 and other current Microsoft Office apps.

The Ribbon is divided into several tabs that provide quick access to various file-management commands. The Home tab lets you copy, paste, move, rename and open files, among other things. The Share tab lets you share files and folders via email, by burning to disc and so on. The View tab lets you customize how you display files and folders in File Explorer. And the File tab on the far left offers features such as quick navigation to frequently visited locations.
