Make sure Project window is opened which contains app and Gradle Scripts. If not , you can open it by selecting View > Tools window > Project
Expanding the app module you can see three different folders.
1) app > manifests > AndroidManifest.xml
The manifest file describes the fundamental characteristics of the app and defines each of its components.
2) app > java > codzify.com.firstandroidapp > MainActivity.java
This is the the entry point of your app. When your app starts this is the first file which will be executed. You can also change the entry point for your app in AndroidMainest.xml file. We will discuss it later.
3) app > res > layout > activity_main.xml
This file defines the UI(User Interface) of an Activity. UI means how your app is going to look like. There may be some labels, buttons , Layouts etc. We will explore it in later tutorials. By default, this file contains <TextView> with default text Hello World . You can view your design in two modes Design & Text .
