Examining the Ribbon in Windows 8’s Windows Explorer


The File menu is designed to provide you with quick access to some of the more general commands in Windows Explorer. When you first access the File menu, you'll see a set of commands on the left side and Favorite places on the right side. The Favorite places show the most recently accessed folders and remains visible until you select a command that has a sub-menu. The sub-menu overlays the Favorite places space and provides you with related options.
