I assume you want it for a windows forms project ?

In the dialogs section there is the openfiledialog is that the kind of thing you are after.

I guess yes. But when added to the windows form it goes to the bottom and not the form. How can i see how it looks or activate it on the form

Normally you would have a textbox on the form that will get  the result of the openfiledialog and a button to open the openfiledialog.

Have a look here :
