Default Very long strange names in download folder

Many times when I download files they get saved with very long weird names instead of their correct names. See screen shot attached, first filename should be d821servicemanual.. anyone know why this happens and how to fix?

Those are normal. They're the update files from 4.4

Right not those, take a look at the file above them. Also happened when I downloaded a bootanimation file, was supposed to be named boot animation.zip and came in like the first file in that screenshot. Had to rename it to correct filename.

Did you download from a Google drive folder by chance? I've seen that when downloading from drive

Yes I think it might have been from Google drive. Weird. Thanks! Know any way to correct this?

I haven't found a workaround. I just rename the zip after download. It has something to do with drive
