cPanel File Manager: Moving a file to a folder

You can use the File Manager to move your files on your server. This allows you to move your files from any device, without the need for an FTP application – all you need is a web browser and Internet connection. 

Dragging files in cPanel File Manager

The cPanel File Manager supports drag-and-drop. This means, you can simply select the files and then drag them into the folder or directory you want to move them to.
