Accessing my windows Application on Ubuntu

I am sure this is simple to do but as a newbie to UNIX i don't know much.
I have Ubuntu installed on my machine alongside windows 7.
How do i access all the folders, files and more importantly programs and softwares installed on Windows so i can use them in Ubuntu instead of going back and forth b/w windows and Ubuntu.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
