In Windows 8 managing files can be accomplished using File Explorer. When using Windows 8 managing folders works the same way.
The View tab makes it easy to change the way files are displayed within a folder. For example, you may prefer to see your files as a list when viewing documents and as large icons when viewing pictures.
Depending on the folder, you may also want to sort your files. For example, you can sort files by size, name, date created, date modified, file type, and much more.
