Typically the file will be placed on your desktop, a Temp folder, the My Downloads folder, or My Documents folder. This is a function of your version of Windows, browser preferences, and your system configuration. If you can't find a recently downloaded file, you can try the following:
- Try and download a file from the Internet, and you will be asked to Save to Disk - when you select OK, the default folder should be shown, indicating where the file will be saved. Cancel this download, then use Windows Explorer to open the default download folder.
- Download the file again, and note the location it is being saved in. If it is the same as the original, you will be asked if it is OK to overwrite the existing file. Note the location, cancel the download, then use Windows Explorer to open the folder.
- Always note the save location, or use the same location everytime you download a file.
- Use the Find or Search function on the hard disk, and specify the file name (indicated on the download link).
