A File Manager software tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could provide you with more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use could make it more annoying and hard for you to handle the website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
