I try to change an image texture, the dialogue box opens so I can view the file explorer, but the image I downloaded (a .jpeg off google) it is no where to be found, as if isn't there.

I have a folder for all my blender files, and other image files load just fine.


Blender automatically adds filters based on the context of where you're adding/searching for files (in the movie clip editor, it'll only show files with movie file extensions, for example).

To disable the filters (in 2.81, might be different in earlier versions), at the top of the Blender file explorer, there should be a filter icon. Click it and uncheck the "Filter" box. A test to see if .jpeg isn't recognized by Blender is just to change the file's extension to .jpg and see if it pops up after refreshing.
