Typical filing cabinets have two to four drawers each, and contain multiple file folders within that can be pulled out via a small handle on the exterior of the cabinet. Most filing cabinets also have a label holder fixed on the front for organization and identification. Found in offices and places of work, the different types of filing cabinets include single box, vertical and lateral filing cabinets which are commonly made from 18-gauge sheet metal or from a wood composite.

The first step is to open the drawer and pull it to its stopping point. Then, put both hands on the sides of the drawer towards the back. Metal tabs should be located on either side. Push the tabs in, lift the drawer up, and pull it out.
