    I've got numerous pdf's I e downloaded to view in Adobe Reader and can't seem to find them to delete them.

    On my S4 I could go to my files and delete them as some of them are quite large. I tried going to downloads but they aren't there.

    I also hooked up to my computer via USB and found the Adobe folder and the files but can't delete them. It pops up a "deleting" box but just sticks there on 1st one and never deletes it.

    Any help?

    Have you tried to delete them by using file manager app on your phone? Before doing that, you should kill all process on your phone to make sure these files aren't opened

    Try download/adobe reader. This is where my droid turbo puts them.

    Settings /storage/download/pdf file .... delete . At least that's what I just did for a pdf file I didn't need any more.

    Do you mean from your computer when hooked up or from phone only?

    I think you're right. Although I've always tended to ignore the supplied file manager when one is included with a phone because I'm so used to using ES File Explorer, which I highly recommend on any android phone or tablet. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roid.pop&hl=en

    Strange so if you tap on Downloads it doesn't show you everything you've downloaded ? I know it does with mine . Then I can just highlight the file click on the 3 dots an delete .

    It's odd. A word doc I downloaded and an xls file showed up in downloads but pdf's don't.

    If you go into the Adobe Acrobat app, you can select (by holding your finger on a filename) and delete PDFs from in there.

    I have the same problem in that my download file is empty yet storage says I have 85.41 MB in that folder. Can anyone help with that? Need more storage space.

    THANKS!
