A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may provide more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use can make it more annoying and hard for you to control your site content, especially if you lack previous experience.
