When I am downloading/printing recipes sometime no print but I can “save” BUT where is it saved to???? On an iPad.
I looked in File file. Not there. Is it saved in the hosts website? Doesn’t ask to save it there.

If it's not in the Files folder, then I'm not sure... Maybe you are in fact just saving it for later on that website, like adding a favorite. Could you share a specific website? Or is this an app?

Did you look in Downloads in the Files folder? If you are in the main On My iPad screen you can select <Files in the upper left and it will open up the left menu column.

Probably downloads. There's a setting for that in Safari prefs (general) - the default is to the Downloads folder, but that can be changed by the user.

You're sure it didn't wind up on your Desktop (possibly with some arcane name)?

I just tried to reproduce this behavior on an iPad and on an iPhone.

I can't see "save" popping up as an option on any websites I've tried.

If I go to print the page, I can "Save to Files." If I select this option, I'm then presented with a choice of folders to save the resulting PDF to. There is a "save" option when I'm in the "Save to Files" interface.

Can you describe the steps you're taking in more detail?

iPads can save by default to two locations: iCloud and “On my iPad”.
Maybe you are saving to one, and searching on the other.
Rotate iPad to landscape while on Files app to see and select locations.
