Access file system of Android Emulator

I'm searching for a way to access the file system of the Android Emulator as if it is connected via USB. Any hints?

    You should be able to use Device Monitor (from the Tools menu in VS). The emulator shows up there, and you can then browse the file system.

    However, depending on the system image, you may not have access to the /data folder under which app data is created.

    Yes, I can use the Device Monitor to browse the file system. But I'm looking for a way to copy a file to the device. I've got a "Kit Kat 4.4 - API 19" emulator and currently I'm going to develop a Cross-platform APP where I need to move an input file to the device for further processing.

    That was the hint I needed. Thanks a lot. I searched the menu but did not recognize the icons.
