I connect an external DVD drive and want to be able to copy files from the harddisk of the Win 10 machine to the external DVD. I don't know how to do it.

It is located under the "Windows System" program link. And if you install OpenShell, you get a replacement start menu, which presents "This PC" option right after you open it (well, actually, the very first time you try to open it, its Settings window opens). But still, the fastest way to open File Explorer is using the yellow folder icon in the taskbar (assuming it wasn't removed for any reason). Traditionally, File Explorer used to be called just Explorer in the old days. Then at one point it was renamed to File Explorer. The confusion stems from the fact that the most common way to open it is not through the shortcut that just points to the File Explorer program, but through the special shortcut (that's my own term for simplicity sake), that opens the specific location in the File Explorer. This special shortcut had different names throughout history, such as "My Computer", "Computer" and "This PC". But it always pointed to the same location where you can access all storage media connected to the computer. The only difference besides the name, they added some commonly used folders in newer Windows versions in the same place where you see all storage media. BTW, I don't know how good it is, but there's this book called Windows 10 for Dummies. Perhaps it has some useful answers.
