    Can I delete the list of downloads that appear when I click the download app button?
    They are various files photos etc that I have renamed and saved to a new folder.
    Only don't want to delete in case I lose them all.
    But if I can delete is there a way to delete them all in one go?

    They are not in my downloads folder.

    Also can you tell me where do images I download from a webpage go?

    They are also not in my downloads folder lol

    As far as I have known, if you have moved the image to another location or renamed it, it won't delete the image when you delete it from your downloads app.

    Try a test. Download a few random images that you don't care about, move them/rename them and then delete them in the downloads app and see if they still exist. On my phone it works this way but do a test first if you want to make sure.

    Alternatively, you could back the pictures up to your pc, go ahead and delete, and if they disappear you can just put them back on your sd card.

    Thanks. Will try that. Do you know how I can delete the whole downloads list? As it's for 6 months now since I bought my nexus phone and tablet.

    Hmm.... Off hand that only thing I can think of is opening your app manager and clearing data for the downloads app.

    Try system settings>apps
    Then go to all apps and tap downloads.
