Determine what a File Manager is really and exactly how it differs from its pc equivalent.
A File Manager tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide you with more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use could make it more aggravating and hard for you to control your site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

account effortlessly. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account.

By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also added help articles and video tutorials, that you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.

If you would like to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to modify a file through a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only need to use the right-click, given that you can access these features through right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your computer system. To make managing your content a whole lot easier, you'll be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by name, size or last modified date.
