Managing files in windows 8 using an app

Good day,
can someone please recommend a free app I can use to manage all of my files, including email files, while in windows 8 using the new tile format.
Thank you!

Question Info

However, if I use the Charms side bar and search for a file, say a word doc file, how can I then copy/paste/etc this file without using the old Desk Top version?


I thought Windows 8 was supposed to be the "next level" whereby everything including file management was accomplished by using tiles and apps only - isnt that the whole point??.

It seems that all you can do is right-click on the file and open the file location - which opens File Explorer in desktop mode.





As far as email and communication goes, the same question holds true, ie how do I manage email files and save them in other folders and directories other than that hosted by the email software.

I don't think you can - the Windows Mail App is a VERY basic mail client.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
