To find recently downloaded files on your PC, click Start on the Windows tool bar, click on My Documents and then open the Downloads folder. The downloaded files are usually stored in the Downloads folder by default unless you save them to a different location in the computer.
Alternatively, you can find your recently downloaded files by checking the download history on your browser. To find the recently downloaded files on Firefox, click on the Tools option at the top menu of the browser, and select Downloads from the shortcut menu.
In the new window, search for a specific file by date or typing the search term into the search box at the top right corner of the window. In Windows 7 or 8, you can search for recently downloaded files by clicking on the Start button and typing the name of the file into the search box.
After recovering the recently downloaded file, save it to a new location that is easier to access or remember. To avoid losing the downloaded files in the future, specify the destination of the file when the Save File dialog box appears. Windows automatically saves the new files into the provided destination unless you change it again.
