    I cannot download files from Facebook groups. When i select the file (pdf, word doc, excel file etc) a box comes up saying "downloading file" but it doesn't download into my phone and it doesn't even open the file. There are lots of helpful files on Facebook groups that I'm in but I cannot access them. I have a pdf app and I've got other files of this nature on my phone that I've downloaded from other sources, this just happens on Facebook but the help centre is no help on the matter

    Welcome to Android Central! It might still be downloading, but into a directory that isn't accessible by your file manager. Which file manager app are you using?
