    How do I get to Windows Explorer?

    Hi,

    I tried to put an item on my taskbar but it was penned to Windows Explorer. How do I get to Windows Explorer? I'm using Windows 7.

    Thank you very much.

    If what you want is to pin Windows Explorer to the taskbar, click Start->All Programs->Accessories, right click Windows Explorer and choose Pin to Taskbar. If this is not what you want to do, please explain what you meant by "How do I get to Windows Explorer?".

    In every version of Windows since XP, if you hold down the Windows Key (bottom row, left side of the keyboard) while you press the "E" key, it will open Windows Explorer.
    Is that what you meant?
