Here’s the deal. You open up My Computer and start browsing for a particular file or folder. About five minutes into it, you realize you would have been better off doing this with Windows Explorer. What to do? Is it time to start over? Is all hope lost? Am I being too dramatic?
Anyhow, when faced with the situation above, most of us would close My Computer, open Explorer, and then hunt around for the file again.
Instead, right-click the file or folder you’re working with in My Computer and select Explore . Windows Explorer opens up with focus on that area.
