    The picture is probably in Photos, Saved Pictures.

    For the Word file, try launching Office to see if it shows up there.

    I'm not sure about the text file. I would think to check out Office for that, too.

    If you connect the phone to your computer, the internal storage and the microSD card should show up.

    Photos show up under Photos, Documents show up under Documents and so on.

    If you're stuck on the phone, open them in their respective apps.

    another windoz garbage: there are no ways to save a file to a certain destination, they go somewhere but in haze. Transfered 5 *.pdf files via bluetooth and only one is visible under the acrobat documents (opening the acr reader can find it in recents but the real location is unknown). The other pdf are invisible. If are made with newer versions of pdf and no acrobat update available, at leat I should be able to delete them. Garbage, as I said ...

    I have Nokia 1020.
    Recently I have downloaded zip file of 142 MBs with mp3 songs in it, I have no idea where it is stored.
    I know it is there somewhere because I have listened to songs and after I closed it I could never find it again.
    it is not under music, under office or recent files, have no clue...:S

    You should try downloading some file manager app.

    After downloading the picture, tap the "..." at the bottom of the screen and then tap "save". Then it will show up under photos > saved photos.

    Similarly for the .docx and .txt files, aftr downloading it, save it. Then go to Office hub.

    You dont need a file manager to find your files. The photos hub, office hub, music+videos hub do the job.

    Try a file manager: http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=...6-43bbc18da986

    http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=...9-3526f54fc25e

    Everything that I download from IE, UC Browser, Torrex Pro, etc. I can find it except documents downloaded from the Office app (I have to download the docs in the OneDrive app, apparently Office's downloaded docs are just temporal).

    For seeing the docs downloaded from Outlook... Well, for pdf I use Adobe Acrobat to find them, for word, excel, etc docs I use Office. But yeah, right now downloading things from mail sucks, the app dont let you decide the location where you want to download the file and I really cant find them even connecting the phone to the PC.

    You have to go into settings, storage sense and save all downloads to your phone instead of your sd card

    I have downloaded some files using Opera Mini browser. I can open them in the application but would like to transfer them to my pc, how do I find them, all the file manager apps I have tried only show Documents, Videos, Pictures, Downloads (and they're not there) etc. Is there a file manager you recommend?

    I can tell you where the photos you try to download from an email attachment don't go: they don't go to SD card, one drive, photos, documents, phone, office or anywhere else accessible to mere mortals. I went from having an open mind to absolutely HATING windows phones over this one issue. Oh and my Lumia camera can't take a selfie so if you're say, holding your grandson who fell asleep on your shoulder and want to send a pic to someone you have to turn the phone around so that you can't see what you're actually taking a pic of and you have to guess where on the screen the "button" is. This is really unacceptable.
    Microsoft, you deserve to have your butts kicked by apple and android. You suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There really isn't anything wrong with Windows Phones. You just happened to buy one that did not have a front-facing camera. That isn't a defect in the device. Many Windows Phones have great front-facing cameras. One cannot blame the device if a customer fails to do his/her research prior to buying a device.

    All you have to do is use the Lumia Selfie app. It detects your face and beeps when you are in focus and then takes the photo by itself. Really quite simple.

    I'm no computer geek...started using windows phone two days ago. Lumia 535. I was facing the same problem...couldn't copy files i have downloaded via opera mini to my pc because they were no where to be found. But i found a way around it. Don't know if it would work for you. When you tap and hold the file you downloaded on the opera mini Downloads window, and option menu appears. The last of which is the "move" option. You can tap on it to move the file to any of the folders on your phone. you can later connect to you pc and copy the files. It works for even unsupported files.

    I have the same problem. I download a pdf file from email. but I'm unable to find it in my Office. and nowhere else can I find it. So I have to download it everytime just to open it, But the downloader keeps asking if I want to replace the existing one, but where is it?

    While I like most other features, this aspect must be the result of an unbelievably stupid design!

    Try downloading the app "files" (owned by Microsoft), it will show you the downloaded files.
