This used to be called Windows Explorer in previous versions of Windows - but now in Windows 8 is File Explorer - and is basically the interface you will use to navigate files and folders on your hard disk, memory stick, CD/DVD etc and perform tasks with them

 

Accessing File Explorer

 

File Explorer can be opened using the icon on the taskbar if using Desktop mode

 

fileexplorer_icon_win8

 

or from the All apps page of the Start screen (under Windows System)
