A File Manager tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can offer you more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use can make it more annoying and challenging for you to handle the website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
