A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can provide you with more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use can make it more annoying and challenging for you to handle the website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
