OK, how can you not know the difference between a folder and an application? That is stuff that even beginner computer users should know.
If your details pane is turned on in Windows 7's explorer, then you'd notice that when you select explorer.exe, it lists it as an application, not a directory. So there's another visual differentiation, if you're not able to tell what it is by the icon.
Also, if you haven't noticed, the way the file structure works in Explorer, it first lists the folders in alphabetical order, and then other files will be sorted again alphabetically, only they'll be under the folders. So there's another hint on how to tell a difference between an application and a directory.
