This is a .NET interface derived from a COM coclass that is required by managed code for interoperability with the corresponding COM object. Use this derived interface to access all method, property, and event members of the COM object. However, if a method or event you want to use shares the same name under the same COM object, cast to the corresponding primary interface to call the method, and cast to the latest events interface to connect to the event. Refer to this topic for information about the COM object. For information about the method and property members of the COM object, see _Explorer. For information about the event members of the COM object, see ExplorerEvents_10_Event.

Use the Item property (this in C#) of the Explorers object to return the object representing a specific explorer.

Use the ActiveExplorer method to return the object representing the currently active explorer (if there is one).

Use the GetExplorer method to return the Explorer object associated with a folder.

Use the Display method of a Folder object to display a folder in its associated explorer.
