Learn what a File Manager is really and just how it is different from its desktop equivalent.
A File Manager tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could provide you with more advanced functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use can make it more annoying and difficult for you to control your site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.
