A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could offer more advanced functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use can make it more annoying and hard for you to control your site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
