A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could provide more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use could make it more annoying and challenging for you to control the site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
