Maybe this is a feature request or need for help or user guide

I checked Safari and we behave the same. You tap “share” → save to files and select location.
Let me know if I am missing something

I returned the iPad as it was fraught with hidden features and crippled apps requiring another Apple or Mac device to be usable.
Thanks for looking into it though.
