Problem: Where to find downloaded images on Galaxy A9

Hello..I recently bought Samsung Galaxy A9..whenever I downloaded images from Google>Images, I understand that the image is downloaded by the arrow pointing downwards at the top left corner of my mobile..however I cannot find the image in my Gallery..I searched the images in my Files, Downloads but still no image of the one I downloaded..

Solution: You may have changed the default app that handles photo and video management. By default, it’s the Samsung Gallery app that should download and display photos and videos. If you installed another similar app, it’s possible that you may have made it as the default app where downloaded images go.

To check, follow the steps below.

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Tap Apps.
  3. Tap More settings icon at the upper right.
  4. Tap Default apps.
  5. Tap Set as default.
  6. Tap Gallery and set it as default.
