May 5th - Windows File Explorer Secrets by Bill James, APCUG Speakers Bureau
File Explorer is an indispensable app that has been designed to provide a simple user interface (UI) for you to navigate, access, and help organize the files, folders, and apps stored on your computer’s hard drive, external drives, and anywhere in your network.  Ever thought you knew exactly where an item was, only to spend hours searching your home for it?  Folders and files on your hard drive can cause the same chaos.  File Explorer can help by putting you in charge of how you work with your documents.  Just like a filing cabinet, you determine your filing method.
