%20 in the name of files instead of spaces

Hello, I'm experiencing an issue with the Web Creative Cloud. When files are being downloaded, there are weird characters appearing in the file name instead of spaces. For example, is the name of the document is "Report File" it will display as "Report%20File". It's really time consuming to change all the file names back. Is this something I can fix? Thanks!

As @kglad said, that's how the Internet works.  Best advice, avoid using spaces and other special characters in filenames.  But you may safely use underscores_ or hyphens- between words if needed. 

 

CamelCase naming is sometimes used on cAsE sEnSiTiVe networks & platforms. But I don't recommend it.
