There are several ways you can find and download PDF files on an Android device. One option is to use a file manager app such as Google Files, which allows you to search for and download PDF files from various sources such as Google Drive, Dropbox, or other cloud storage services. You can also download PDFs directly from websites using the built-in browser or a dedicated PDF downloader app such as PDF Viewer or Adobe Acrobat Reader. Additionally, you can search for PDF files using search engines such as Google and use the inbuilt download options in your device to save them directly on your device’s storage.

Where do I find downloaded PDF Files?
When you download a PDF file, it is usually saved in the default storage location configured on your device. This location may differ depending on the operating system you are using.
If you are using a Windows computer, the default download location is usually the Downloads folder, which is located in your user folder. You can also click on the download button in your browser, and then select "Show in folder" to open the folder where the file is saved.

On an iPhone or iPad, downloaded PDF files can be found in the Files app. Open the app and navigate to the "Downloads" folder, or use the search function to find the file.
If you use an Android device, you can usually find downloaded PDF files in the Downloads app or folder, depending on your device. You can also search for the file by name in your device’s file manager or through the search function on your device.

If you are unable to find downloaded files on your Android device, the first place to look would be in the Download folder. You can access this by opening the file manager app on your device, tapping on "Internal storage" or "SD card," and then locating the Download folder. If you still cannot find your downloaded files, try downloading a new file to see if it appears in the Download folder afterwards.
