A File Manager software tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may offer more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use can make it more irritating and tough for you to control your website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
