    One near equivalent which I use is Krusader.

    To install go to Applications > Ubuntu Software Centre.

    There are others of course .. Thunar is another .. but just try Krusader for now.

    Now launch Krusader

    Click on "/" in toolbar to take you to your filesystem.

    bin
    boot
    build
    etc.
    ...

    Click on "home" and select your user account

    This is similar to entering C:/Users/Yourusername/ in Windows

    Now in Krusader go to View > Show Hidden Folders

    You can now see installed apps such as .mozilla (Firefox)

    You can draw other parallels with Windows. But a file manager such as Krusader, Thunar or other helps in navigating the file system.
    I do not see a way to mount extra drives in krusader or network drives?

    Krusader > Tools > Mountman

    or in Ubuntu top bar > Places

    there are other ways .. by terminal or by apps.
