A File Manager tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could provide you with more advanced functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use can make it more aggravating and hard for you to manage your website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
