    My samsung recently stopped downloading files(PDFs, .zips, anything really). I can download apps just fine from the play store, but browser downloads do not work at all. When I click a file to download, the downloads folder opens up, but the files never start downloading. I dont even get the notification that they are trying to download. I have plenty of storage space. I tried clearing cache from the downloads app, and the entire phone. Neither helped. What could be causing this ?

    Make sure Chrome (or whichever browser you're using) has permission to use Storage:

    Settings->Apps->Chrome
    Permissions
    Enable "Storage"

    Welcome to Android Central! When you say it doesn't allow downloads from Chrome, what exactly happens when you try to download? What kinds of files are you trying to download?
