    The "downloads" icon is not on home screen or apps. How do I fix that?

    I don't remember the S5 having a "download" icon by default. You can get a file explorer like ES File Explorer and view all your downloaded content in your downloads folder.

    The Nova Launcher will help you set up shortcuts.

    But I don't recall ever seeing an icon labeled 'downloads'

    My Verizon S5 had an "app" called Downloads until the November update(at least I think it was November). Now you can find your downloads under "My Files" in the app drawer. YMMV by carrier though.

    Normally I use Google Keyboard, but I recently reset my phone any have been using the stock Samsung Keyboard. The Samsung Keyboard just seems a bit too touchy to me, such as letters I'm not going for being pressed.

    Samsung devices have a built in file explorer. There is a "downloads" section you can look into to see the files you have downloaded to your device.
