Right–click context menus
Manage all files with just a click of the mouse
The majority of File Managers list all of the activities you can execute within a file or folder on the top of the page. We think this isn’t intuitive enough. With the File Manager, you have access to all file managing options any time you right–click a file or directory. This option is likewise applicable for a group of files/folders.
You can rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or directory you choose with merely a mouse–click.

The File Manager supports many file extensions, just like .ZIP, .RAR and .TAR.GZ.

When you’re in charge of a bunch of websites simultaneously, it’s crucial that you have everything sorted out. With some other File Managers, editing a lot of web sites within the exact same website hosting account is quite challenging. Using our File Manager, you will find that it is actually rather easy.
