A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could provide you with more advanced functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use may make it more irritating and difficult for you to control the website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
