Can't find hard drive capacity in Windows 8

Again, Windows 8 confounds me because of the lack of traditional "Start" button. Is there a "My Computer" window where I can see how much storage iss being used or remains on my hard drive? Sign me, "Windows H8ter!

File Explorer (the new name for Windows Explorer) has all sorts of new features.

 

But as usual, you can right-click on the drive itself and click Properties. The General tab looks the same to me.

If you right click on the desktop tool bar, you can add a "desktop bar".  This will add computer, control panel, etc... which makes it easy to find some of these things.
