A File Manager tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could offer more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can 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 will be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use could make it more frustrating and complicated for you to manage your site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
