To access file manager, login to your control panel and once inside click "File Manager" A new window should load showing what you would see as if you were using a ftp client. There's going to a bunch of folders and some other files related to your account functioning correctly. Do not delete any of these files/folders ever.
Navigate in File Manager:
Uploading a File: To begin uploading you will always first go inside the "public_html" folder. To do so click the folder icon (not the wording). Once clicked you will be in the main folder of your site where you can upload your content, create more folders, and delete what you please. To upload, click "upload files" You will then click the browse button until you find the file on you computer that you wish to upload. When you are done uploading you can click the "back" at the bottom of the screen to take you back to your main folders.
Editing a File: To edit a file just click the text wording of its' name. The right hand side will allow you to show file, delete file, edit file, change permissions, rename file, copy file, and move file.

However, once you empty the Trash folder, the files are permanently deleted. Refer to Emptying the Trash for more information.

You can edit online HTML pages directly through the File Manager.
Creating a new folder: Folders are a very useful way of adding organization and structure to your web site. They make maintenance of the site much easier, as you can easily see what files are in which folder. Most web sites include at least an /image folder to keep all the image files separate from the HTML files.
