A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can provide more advanced functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives.

The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use can make it more annoying and challenging for you to control your website content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
