Where are my downloaded/saved files?

Hi. I recently bought a playbook and I have been downloading a variety of apps and other file types (not apps) while experimenting. Specific example: I tested a torrent download from a Site using the playbook browser ( I did not port over from pc ) and saved the file to my BlackBerry playbook so I could Copy the url from the torrent file into another site, bitly.org


Now I can't find the location the file was saved to on my playbook. I have checked the swipe down / download areas & poked around the most obvious areas but cannot find where the file saved to on the playbook so I can delete it.


Where is the download folder located on the playbook and how do I access it to delete downloaded files without connecting the pb to my pc? Can I even delete downloads from the pb without going through a pc at all?

Re: Where are my downloaded/saved files?

Can someone PLEASE help me?? The only way I am able to get pictures of my children and grandchildren is by downloading them onto my playbook through Facebook. I go through the process...it asks to save the jpg and then says download complete. However, then I am unable to FIND the pictures. I apologize for pestering people but am becoming frustrated and would very much like to have these pictures to view. I obviously am not that technologically literate, but any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Oh.....and dropbox/Box are not options as my children do not use those Smiley Sad

Re: Where are my downloaded/saved files?


I suggest you simply install the free application named "AIR BROWSER" on your PlayBook. It is a file explorer, that will enable you to browse all the folders.

Eventually after 2min of searching, you will come across the download folder that contains your saved pictures.
