A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can offer more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use can make it more frustrating and complicated for you to manage the website content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
