Learn what a File Manager is really and exactly how it differs from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager software tool is available 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 range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may offer you more complex features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded through 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 manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use may make it more frustrating and complicated for you to control the site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
