    Windows <> IOS

    IOS files are stored by application not in a user maintainable file structure like Windows.

    Why don't you try stating, very simply, what you are trying to do?

    Due to the design by Apple, apps cannot share data/files. This is called "sandboxing" and is for security. If an app can't share data, then a virus cannot spread or files get corrupted.

    The Photos app is designed differently, in that you CAN access it with your computer. Again, this design is on purpose by Apple so you can access the photos on the iPad easily with a computer.

    Most apps now, that have files, can take advantage of the "open in" function Apple designed. This is so you can be in one app and "open" the file in another. This is the only way for apps to share between each other. If there is no "open in" function in one app, another app cannot/will not be able to use the file. And, when a file is opened in another app, a copy is actually being made in the new app; the original is in the old app.

    An iPad is completely different from a computer. It is app-centric while computers are file-centric. There is no central storage point (or address to follow) for apps to share files.

    Hope this help clarifies.

    Again - a stock iPad and its apps cannot share files. There is no folder in an app that is accessible to another app like Photos. There is nothing, on a stock iPad, that will allow you to create a folder that all apps can access.

    To open a file in another app, you must use the "open in" function (if that app's developers have designed the app to include that function). There is no central file to "share all. "

    Maybe if you explained what you are trying to do, exactly, we can help with that?
