tools?? as in system tools?
click Start | All Programs [right at the bottom, above the search box]
Scroll down past all those icons ... for Accessories [click it] then look for a folder that says System Tools
for Windows Explorer... I just click the Start - then when that window pops up,
on the right... i click on Computer...
then from there ... I'll click "C" which will open what ever is on "C". or which ever drive you want to view.
It's not perfect... sometimes i still have a hard time finding things...i've had this [Win7] since mid-June ... and there are some things i do like. but everythign is a learning curve.
