Notsure Where to find USB downloaded material on Nexus 7?

So I downloaded some pdfs and a flv file from a computer to the Nexus through a USB cable. The "send to" said Nexus 7.

But then I couldn't find it, and it wasn't under downloads?

Later I did find the files, but ONLY through my Moon+ reader...even then it was just through clicking around "local files", the pdfs hadn't shown up on my Moon bookshelf. Even the FLV file(from Youtube) showed up, though obviously I can't get it to play.

Where should I have looked for these? I don't think I need to look to Moon+ to find my USB downloaded files, especially non-book files, and especially since I may switch from Moon+.

So..uh..how do I find these assorted files in the future?

Also, as a secondary thing...Moon+ gave me a message saying it doesn't do PDF because I don't have the Pro version...but then in my files I found a red icon that said "pdf reader"...what was that reader a part of, originally?

Pdf reader is included in the system.
Since you sent it right to your nexus, the files are probably in the root of your storage.
The android OS doesn't come with a file explorer, so you can't browse your file system.
Moon reader has some sort of file browser built in, so that's how you found them. Many apps have file browsers integrated, ebook readers or Dropbox for example. But there are tons of dedicated file browser apps with wide ranges of functionality. A simple and good file browser would be File Manager HD for instance. But there's loads more with extensive functionality, should you need it.
Or you could just copy the files to your download folder so you can see them from the downloads app. If you go to my computer, the N7 should be right there and you can browse through the folders from your pc.
