Files: When you upload a file (picture, video etc) this is the folder that it will be kept in.
Edit: When you click on this you will notice a new left side toolbar appear. This has all the options you need to edit your website. The most useful part of this left side bar is 'Page' and 'Page Master'. Your website comes in 3 parts. The Page, Page Master and Page Footer. The Page is what you will edit most. The Page Master contains content that appears on every page, you add it to the Page Master to save you having to add the same content to every page.

You will now be able to edit all content in your Page Footer.
