    Hi
    New to Android.
    Im downloading attachments through the Gmail app.
    They download fine & I can open them but if I want to re-open them later I cant find where they were saved to & I have to re-download the attachment.
    Can anyone help me understand where in the multitude of folders under "my files" are these attachments going?
    Thanks

    They could be in Downloads folder or in the Android-Data-Gmail folder if there is one. Let us know.

    Under Android-Data there are a bunch of different folders but none for gmail.
    Still looking...

    Just noticed there are 2 hidden options in gmail with attachments- download or save.
    For some reason if i "download" it, i cant find it on my phone anywhere, but if I click "save" then I can find under the "downloads" folder.
    Thats so logical right?
    Anyway thanks for your help.

    I ran into the same issue. I solved it by opening the files using the right programm...in my case that was adobe reader...not sure about the location though.
