You save data as files, save files in folders and subfolders, and access folders from libraries.

Windows 8 comes with its own file system that includes various default folders to which you should save data, including but not limited to My Documents, Public Documents, My Pictures, Public Pictures, My Music, Public Music, My Videos, Public Videos, Contacts, Downloads, and others.

LIbraries offer access to data stored in folders. Four libraries exist: Documents, Pictures, Music, and Videos. Each offers access to two folders by default, the related personal folder and the Public folder.

It's very important to save files to their respective folders and to create subfolders when data starts to amass.

File Explorer is the best way to navigate to the data you keep and offers the ribbon to help you navigate it.

The most-often-used tabs on the File Explore ribbon are Home, Share, and View. You use these tabs to work with the data you collect, including renaming, deleting, sendВ­ing email, printing, moving, and so on.

It's possible to customize File Explorer by hiding and showing data or culling data by searching for something specific.

You can create your own libraries to hold email that should be grouped together but does not fit the limited standards of a single folder. After you create a library, you choose which folders to make accessible from it.
