Hi thanks in advance.

Many times I try to download or save something on ipad and it ends up saving it to “Files” in ios. But when I try to open it, it just comes up grey with the name of the file and “Data” underneath the name. I can’t do anything with the file.

What is happening ??

Click on the File and then click on Properties. Make sure it's set to Everyone can RWE (or simply set it to your level).

I get this file informationIMG_2367.PNG but if I click the file to try to open it, I just get a screen like this .....IMG_2368.PNG and nothing clickable on that screen ???

Amy, this may be the root of the problem, I didn’t know I needed an app to be able to read files ?? I guess I just assumed that ios would handle the files itself. What apps are there ?

Looks like some type of game file called Go. Look for Go Expert - SGF Editor in the App store
