A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can provide you with more complex capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use can make it more aggravating and hard for you to manage your site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.
