Find Downloaded Files

Find Downloaded Files

Ever download a file from the Internet and then spend hours trying to find it on your computer, or give up after convincing yourself you must be crazy?

Chances are:
* You're not crazy
* Your file did not slip into a black hole
* You can find it!

Here are the steps to finding your downloads whether you use MS Vista, Google Chrome, AOL, or Firefox


Difficulty: Easy
Using VISTA:
Click on the Start Button
Click on Documents
Click on Downloads folder
You'll now be able to see a list of all your downloaded files. Select the file.
Click Tools (looks like a little wrench on the right hand side)
Select Downloads
You'll now see a chronological list of all downloads for the past thirty days.
Select your file.

**For files more than thirty days old, or to quickly find a file by name: If you know at least part of the file name, you can enter it in the search box at the top and click on Search Downloads.

Using AOL:
On the AOL Menu Bar
Click File
Click Download Manager
In the Download Manager window, highlight the file you want and click the Find File Button

From the menu bar,
Select Tools
Select Downloads
The Download Manager window will show a list of downloaded files
Select your file

**Note, you may need to get the Download Manager add-on first!
