Check Ether Balance

I saw on the main website there is a place to check one's balance if one enters their ether address.

Is the "ether address" the email address used when purchasing the Ether or maybe the .json file? I tried entering my email address, and got an error message, and my .json attachment doesn't open?

This is a a good learning lesson that Ethereum needs to have "Ethereum for Dummies" directions as well.

    "Ethereum for Dummies" . . . [locating] "ether address" directions

    @Andrew try this:

    1. Open 'TextEdit' (on mac) or 'NotePad' (on win)
    2. Click 'File' in the navigation bar (top of screen) of whichever app you're using
    3. Select 'Open'
    4. Locate the .json file that you downloaded
    5. Open it
    6. When the file opens (in TextEdit or NotePad), press 'command + F' (mac) 'CNTRL+F' (win) to enable search (you'll be searching the contextual content of your .json file)
    7. In the 'find' field, type: ethaddr (the app will then search the .json file and highlight: ethaddr)
    8. The number in quotations, to the right of the word 'ethaddr', following ":" is your ether address.
