Can you open this link please and tell me if it's downloaded on your device somewhere?

(Obviously think through it that's ok first - unlike me!)

I opened it but can't find it to delete. I've tried asking in Chat but didn't want to post actual link.

It's the PDF file I opened.

It will depend on what device you have, surely?

On my Windows 10 laptop, in Chrome, if I click on the link to download it just opens up a preview of the PDF in the same Chrome window, it does not download it.

If you are worried that someone will look through your device you should probably google "clearing browsing history on <name of your device>".

Maybe it's not anywhere.

Android phone.
Not in "docs" or "downloads"

I was in incognito browser. When I clicked on it I got a message that said it wouldn't open in incognito browser, did I still want to proceed
I clicked "cancel" but it opened anyway

I cleared browsing history but not there anyway.

Never mind. Assume it's not anywhere.

Sounds like it was just showing in the browser rather than downloading then.

Hope you are OK.
