Your Inventory is the tab where you can access (and manipulate) all of the items on your person and those on the ground in close proximity to you. To view the Inventory menu you need to press the "Tab" key by default.
The number of inventory slots available for you to use will vary depending on what clothing and equipment you are wearing. Different items of clothing will have a differing number of slots depending upon how many pockets they have, for example, and arranged in a different manner (6 rows x 2 columns vs. 4 rows x 3 columns). Certain pieces of equipment, such as the Chest Holster, can only hold a specific kind of item (in this case, a handgun).
You can also use your Inventory tab to view items on the ground nearby to you and either pick them up, use them, or combine them with something else. While you are in the Inventory screen you can choose to craft items, eat food or drink beverages, use medical supplies on yourself or others, and manage your supplies. You can also use the Inventory screen to assign items to the hot bar at the bottom of your screen in order to quickly use them with one key press; all you have to do is click and drag an item to the desired slot 1 through 10 at the bottom.
