Find downloaded files

Having trouble finding your document?  

Did you download it from the internet and just hit save?

This guide gives instructions for finding Microsoft Office documents that were downloaded from an online source, then saved to an internet Temp folder (default location for downloaded files on MSU library public computers).

Screen shot instructions

First, try double-checking the Saved Documents folder on the desktop. Not there? Type in part of the title of your missing file in the search bar in the upper right-hand corner of the Saved Document folder. This can provide access to your document, even if it's in a different location.
