isn't it simply the dialog shown when you want to open a file? what are you trying to do?

You right-click the setup project within Solution Explorer, then select View->File System. You can see an example of that in the following tutorial:

but, I don't have the option of view ->Files System - just View-> Class Diagram
that example is VS 2008. I have VS 2010 pro.

I think they are referring to the windows explorer in that article:
Explorer = File System Editor ?

Yep... the File Syestem Editor you see all over hat article actually refers to Widows Explorer.
It has nothing to do with Visual Studio.

The article on MSDN is in the section "Visual Studio Installer deployment". Accordingly, it applies to Setup and Deployment Project. If you create one, or add to your solution (which is explained in the 2nd and 3rd articles in the same section on MSDN), you will see File System Editor at once.

I'm a little lost as to which article is being referred to.
this article to which I referred does not seem to be referencing windows explorer:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/syyw4edd(v=vs.100).aspx
but, rather a FILE SYSTEM EDITOR in VISUAL STUDIO.

Also,
I'm using a CLICKONCE deployment; not a Setup And Deployment project.

My "goal" is to be able to use my project specific ICON in Add and Remove Programs.

If your goal is to deploy by clickonce, then you are looking at the wrong article. This article describes the process of deployment by Windows Installer, which is totally different from ClickOnce. Look at the left side of the MSDN webpage and note the hierarchy it's under, and this article:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/e2444w33%28v=vs.100%29.aspx


Clickonce does not support configuring the icon for add/remove programs. You can hack it in if you really want to, using technique described at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13265806/icon-for-clickonce-app-in-add-remove-programs . However, we don't recommend it, even for Installer-based products, because if the product is uninstalled, the configured icon remains in the registry.
