A File Manager tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may offer you more complex capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably 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 which is not easy to use could make it more aggravating and difficult for you to control the website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
