A file manager is a genre of software that has inbuilt user interface to manage files and folders. There is denying the fact that files are created for alteration, rectification, replication or upgradation and it is the responsibility of the file manager to perform such operations. At the same time, the manager arranges folders and files in a hierarchical tree based on their directory structure.
There is a revelation that some file managers are integrated with forward and back navigational buttons to simplify the folder and file display process. Of late, you can come across file managers backed by network connectivity through protocols including, FTP, NFS, SMB and WebDAV. This is obtained by enabling the user to browse for a file server or by delivering its own complete client implementations for file server protocols. All in all, the file manager is here to stay and allow you to organize your files and folders in an advanced manner.
