A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may provide more complex capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use may make it more frustrating and hard for you to control your website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
