The File Explorer or file manager you refer to on Windows really has no exact equivalent on the Mac, however, the "Finder" on your Mac is as close as you're going to get. There are third party file managers for the Mac which act very much like the Windows file manager. One such that I use is called "muCommander" and can be downloaded from here. It's also free.
