    Hi there, I'm new here and hope you masters can help me in solving my issue.

    I'm using a samsung galaxy note 2, and just recently I've noticed that whenever I download a pic from the Internet using any browser, the pic does not seem to immediately appear under the "Downloads" folder. It takes up almost 30 mins sometimes to show up. But when I browse thru "My Files", I can find the downloaded picture there.

    I've gone thru some related post with regards to this, they say apps such as "Mediascan" and "Quickpic" is an alternate method to solve this. But, my question is why is this taking place only on the browser downloaded pics? My other pics folders works perfectly alright.

    For info, I'm not using any sd card at the moment. Hence all is being saved under my internal memory.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forums! That's an interesting problem. Is your phone rooted?

    What if you change the download location to another folder?

    I have noticed the same issue and just assumed it was a quirk. I usually download a pic and then go check my email and by the time I am done, it's in the downloaded folder in the gallery. I look forward to hearing a solution to this as well.

    I've noticed this too, it's very frustrating!!! I only see it with Google apps like Chrome and Drive. Downloaded images from other apps and stock browser show up immediately like they should. I hope there's a fix for this soon!

    So far I'm using this app called "Rescan Media". Once I save a pic from browser, I immediately press the app. Takes a few mins to load the saved pic into the "Downloads" folder. But still, there is no proper solutions for this issue
