Have you tried selecting the emulator in the devices tab?
Select the file explorer tab then click on emulator-5554 in the devices tab and the file tree should appear in the explorer window. The device is not highlighted in the posted image which is why I have mentioned it.

If by that you mean clicking on it then yes. Unless there is some other way of selecting the device that I do not know about.
