A file manager is a tool that enables you to look at the layout of the files and directories on your system and to perform various actions on the files (copy, move, delete, open, and so on). There are three particularly useful choices for a file manager: Konqueror, Nautilus, and mc. If you are using KDE, then by default you are likely to use Konqueror as your graphical file manager. If you are using GNOME, the same applies to Nautilus. mc (the Midnight Commander) is a text-based file manager that has some very useful features.
