Explorer

The user interface in Windows starting with Windows 95. It includes the Start menu, Taskbar, desktop and file manager. For most users, the term refers only to the file manager component, called "Windows Explorer" or "File Explorer," which is used to display the folder hierarchies on the drives and copy, rename and delete files and folders (see Win Explorer). See EXPLORER.EXE and file manager.
