A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can offer more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier 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's difficult to use could make it more aggravating and complicated for you to control your site content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
