Using Micro-USB-to-USB adapter, how do I access data files on a flash drive?

Using a Micro-USB-to-USB adapter, I can see photos & movies that I have stored on a USB flash drive; but, I cannot figure out how to see/access data files (not photos or movies) on a flash drive.  Any suggestions, please?

Are those data files written in Android format or are they Windows/Mac programs/data files?  Android will not read files built for other operating systems.

The files were created in Windows.  I suppose if I want to access them on this tablet, I'd have to either recreate them in Android format or convert them to that format, if that's even possible.  Either way, it appears not to be worth the effort.  Thanks for the response!!
