shared folders on VirtualBox work mostly the same way as network shares.
for example, you make a share called "apps". one way to access it is to open an Internet Explorer window and type into the address bar "\\vboxsrv\apps". it will change to a regular Explorer folder window and show the files/folders.
another way is to do Tools > Map Network Drive and put in "\\vboxsrv\apps" in the location box. this will mount it as a drive letter in My Computer.
replace "apps" with the name of the shared folder you setup in VirtualBox
