The Internet has made it easier for us to access content online without having to go through the apparently tedious download process that most people are not accustomed to. In most cases, when people download specific content from the Internet, many users share it with someone and after that, we regret deleting the same task or reopening it to complete other tasks. When it comes to our computers, we know that the files we download on the Internet are available in the default download folder. If you are downloading some files on your Android smartphone query where are my downloads going?
If most people these days use Google Chrome as the primary web browser on your smartphone, downloads will not be available in your smartphone’s internal storage or the default download folder on the SD card. But this does not mean that downloads are going to the place of some mysterious aliens. It will always be on your smartphone, but you will never know where it is. So, today I’m going to talk about where to find downloads made by Google Chrome and how to set the location you want, i.e. there is an internal storage or SD card in your smartphone for your download. Google Chrome uses a web browser on your Android smartphone. I think it will make your experience of using a smartphone even better and more comfortable.
So without further ado, let’s start with how to find downloads on your finished Android smartphone using Google Chrome and set the default location for all your downloads.
