A file manager (or file browser) is a computer program that provides a user interface to work with file systems. The most common operations used are create, open, edit, view, print, play, rename, move, copy, delete, attributes, properties, search/find, and permissions.
Some file managers provide network connectivity such as FTP, NFS, SMB or WebDAV. This is achieved either by allowing the user to browse for a file server, connect to it and access the server's file system like a local file system, or by providing its own full client implementations for file server protocols.
