How to find downloaded files on Android devices?

Sometimes it can happen that you can't find files that you have downloaded via an internet browser with your Android smartphone or tablet.

If you are faced with this problem, don't be upset, because in this guide we will show you how to find all downloaded files on your Android devices.


Where can I find downloaded files on my Android device?

Many Android smartphones, for example from Samsung, Huawei, Sony, Oppo, OnePlus, etc., already have their own file manager on board, which you can use to quickly and conveniently access the directory structure of your storage.

The file manager is usually available as an app in the menu under "My Documents" or "Files". When you start it, you should see the download area directly in the first row in the middle. Select the entry and you will get to your download.

Alternatively, navigate to the following path:

  • Internal Memory/ Download

If you do not have your own file explorer installed, you can download and install one from the google Play Store. We recommend the following app:

  • File manager + download in Google Play Store

Now you know the answer where to find your downloaded files on an Android device.
