Determine what a File Manager is and precisely how it differs from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager tool is found in all website 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 primary functions - 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. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use may make it more annoying and challenging for you to handle your Internet site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
