Hi there,

Yes, Team Explorer is for Team Foundation Server, Microsoft's "Application Lifecycle Management" tool which includes source control (but way better than source safe), work item management, document management and reporting.

It's an advanced tool and as such way out of scope for this book. You'll find more info about TFS in the following books:

For the purpose of learning ASP.NET using Beginning ASP.NET 4, you can ignore the Team Explorer.

Cheers,

Imar
