A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may provide more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more annoying and challenging for you to handle the site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
