Question Where does Ubuntu store application files?


Hi, my name is Marc, and I'm new to Ubuntu (Linux in general as a matter of fact). I'm used to Windows so I'm a bit confused because Linux is very different. So, my first question on this forum is the following:
Where does Ubuntu store application files? I just can't seem to locate them. I think they are in a folder called lib, under another one called usr but I'm not sure. Can anybody help me?
Marc

Most likely /usr/bin.

Okay, thanks, I'll try later (I'm posting from a Windows PC, so I cannot access Ubuntu right now)!
