You can either load or visit such a file and type C-c C-c to toggle  
the file's presentation. Or use dired ...

... a very basic mode that "just" shows you the contents of a  
directory. You start it with C-x d <some path to a directory> RET.  
Often the mini-buffer will offer you a default, which is $HOME, the  
present working directory in *shell*, *term*, or such, or the  
directory of the file you're just viewing or editing.

It's worth of reading dired and its extension dired-x. It's also of  
advantage having customised  '(dired-dwim-target t) – dwim means: Do  
What I Mean – then dired acts like Norton Commander. Once you know  
dired you'll forget Finder!
