File tab and FTP tab

I just started using SmartFTP and so far I have used the connect tutorial to connect to my host.
When I was following this turorial I didnt notice that where the tab says FTP on the tutorial is says file on mine. Now im using the tutorial on uploading at I dont have the FTP tab to click and follow on.
Or do I just need the file tab to upload?
I just want to know how to upload files and view them.
