    I'm Using Open Office which has the option to export files in PDF format, but when I do this, I can't find the file. It's not in documents, downloads or pictures. I can see it as it's being saved but can't find it afterwards if this makes any sense. I hope this snip will help.

    You can click on down arrow in location bar and it will show you full path, or you can select new folder (in left tree) an Libre office will remember for the nest time.
    Of course, you can always search for the file, too.

    Try this: Find a file or folder - Windows Help

    If you REALLY want to find a file ANYWHERE on your PC quickly, as in almost instantly (once you have run the program to create a 1st time index use either
    Everything by void tools (modern GUI)
    or
    Locate32 (older, not maintained)

    Both free. They create (quickly) and then maintain an index of all files. Search is 'find as you type'

    Have you tried to search with Windows search first? Just click on the start and start typing one of the names that you want to find.

    I found them. They were in the gallery. I just don't understand why there's not an option, a folder labeled "gallery"??

    Well... I would suggest you try searching.

    Try "void tools"

    and "Locate32 freeware"

    Note: the "" means literally that text if you are unfamiliar
