A file is a sequence of squares on the chess board that runs in a straight (not diagonal) line from the white pieces (in the initial position) to the black pieces. There are 8 files on the chess board, and they are labeled from left to right, from White's perspective, with the letters a to h in algebraic notation (in English).
