hi okay, so i downloaded some stuff from chrome by pressing and holding, and then deleted from my gallery. the issue now is, they dont show in my gallery app, or downloads app, but if i go to send a photo via like whatsapp or discord i either have gray squares (that say this file is not supported) or a few of the photos still there? theyre not in my gallery at all, and im just wondering how do i find them to delete?
i have a redmi note 9
edit: i have managed to find and remove the photos remaining, still have the gray boxes though which is annoying

I think the grey boxes would be removed if you took a photo and deleted it. It'd still show up, but it'll only be one grey box. Not much you can do about it.

Download ES file explorer and try to find them. If you know the filename of the file, it would be easier to search.

Try using your PC to search them but also make sure that 'show hidden files' is ticked in windows file explorer.
