What precisely is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is 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 few Control Panels may provide you with more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use can make it more irritating and complicated for you to handle the site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.
