The Sims 4: How To Use The Mod Manager
You can select and move mods into folders to better manage them and make it easier to find specific ones.
The 'load' and 'unload' options essentially dictate whether the mods will be included in your game file or not. You can unload custom content at any time, which means you won't have it in your game, but you also won't lose the download if you ever wish to include it again.
The thumbnails are a big game changer. Most mods will already have image files attached; the Mod Manager uses these as a thumbnail so you can see which mods are what without having to load it into your game first. This is a great time saver if you need to locate a specific mod or custom content file.
You can also filter items by creator type or select a different thumbnail image for the file.
The 'Problems' tab on the left-hand side is a great tool for finding any CC files that have been corrupted or are outdated. Before now, to find a broken CC file you would have to uninstall all custom content and mods and add each one back into the game until the broken one could be located. Now, with the Mod Manager, you have a chance of locating them with much more ease.
