What is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
A File Manager software tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may provide more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use may make it more aggravating and hard for you to handle your website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
