Opening a folder on Windows 10 can be done in a few different ways. One way is to look for the manila-colored envelope icon on your taskbar and the bottom bar on your Windows screen. Clicking on this icon will take you to a quick access area where you’ll see your favorites, frequently used files, and a few other options.
