In XP and other windows editions, if you wanted to see all your files and all your disks, you went to start, pressed the right half of the mouse, tapped explore with the left half, and there were all the major locations on your majaor drive and all the other drives. What is the simple way to access explore on windows 7?
Don't have 7 yet, just passing aquaintance with it.

I will give it another try tomorrow and see if I goofed up in some manner. I don't think I did though. I am working with a laptop and have not hooked up the mouse, just using the touchpads.

thank you for the reply.

My W7 Home Prem 64 bit works that way. Right mouse button on the Start Orb and you have 2 choices, Properties and Open Windows Explorer.

Additionally, if you should click on the Start ORB, on the top left part Windows Explorer is there as well.
