    When I download files form Gmail they are stored in the Internal Storage/Download folder. However, the Download drawer in My Files does not show these files.

    What do I do to get My Files to show the Download folder?

    Thank you.

    Which phone?
    Which version of android?
    Are you using the GMail app or a third-party email app?

    Welcome to Android Central! Can you also confirm that you are in fact referring to the Gmail app, and not the Google search app? Downloading files from Gmail would mean saving email attachments -- is that what you're talking about?

    If, on the other hand, you're actually referring to the Google search app (and not Chrome), you have to make sure the Google app's Storage permission is turned on (it defaults to off for some odd reason). If Storage permission is off, files go to a protected system directory called /document that can only be accessed by the Google app. If Storage permission is on, then files go to the standard /Download directory that the user can easily access. Go to Settings>Apps, select the Google app, tap Permissions, then turn on Storage permission.
