Determine what a File Manager is really and how it differs from its pc counterpart.
A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can provide more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use may make it more frustrating and difficult for you to control your website content, especially if you lack previous experience.
