A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could offer more complex features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably 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 which is tough to use may make it more irritating and challenging for you to control your site content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
