Where Is The File Manager (Explorer)

I need to find the file manager, aka Windows Explorer.
I'm new to Windows 7 and very disturbed
It talks about it, but I don't see it.

I've got Vista on one computer and I found it, but on Windows 7, can't.

Hold down the Windows key and "E" at the same time.

Windows Explorer magically appears.

Well golly, I sure miss my Windows Explorer. This one looks so different.
Thru the years I loved Windows, ME, XP, hated Vista, but now....it looks pretty good compared to Win7.

I know, you only like the one you use...but one thing, I'm sure glad I found you guys to help me.

If I could, I'd still be using File Mangler !!
I've NEVER liked the Explorer interface and its "magic" tree !

In case you want to find the exe, so that you can make a shortcut to it, look in the Accessories folder.

If you like the " Old Style " Explorer try Directory Opus.

I have used it for years and it is Outstanding.

I didn't really find it much different from XP, what is missing?
