A File Manager tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer you more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use may make it more frustrating and difficult for you to handle your site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.
