17. find out what the Desktop Manager is used for?

Research In Motion provide documentation and a download link for the Desktop Manager software (available for both Windows and Macintosh clients).

The software manages the link between your BlackBerry and your computer, allowing you to backup, restore and upgrade your device. It also offers a facility to better manage what information is replicated from Nexus (specifying which inbox subfolders to synchronise for example) and to install or remove third party applications.

If you select a version including the Media Manager it can also synchronise music and other media files converting the format if necessary to ensure playback is possible.
