    1. Find and tap Settings > Storage.
    2. If your device has an external SD card, tap Internal shared storage. If not, go directly to step 3.   (For Android 13: select SD card in the pulldown menu under Storage)
    3. Find and tap Files.
    4. Tap Downloads.

    Tip: Touch and hold a file to share  it, or tap the menu button (three vertical dots) to move, copy or rename it.

    You can also download a file manager app from Google Play™ Store. Files received using Bluetooth are found in your file manager's bluetooth folder.
