download manager

  jason.p 14:27 31 Aug 2008

I've just downloaded a file, and now I can't find it. I wasn't given the option where to put it, it said temporary file as the destination. I've done a search for what I think is the name, and come up with nothing. Can I get a list of recent downloads from the file manager, if so where do I find it. I did a search for that and couldn't find it. I'm using XP Home.
Thanks in advance

Are you using a download manager of any type?

Can you open your download manager and look for Option or Preferences which will probably tell you where it stores the downloads? My download manager keeps a list of the downloaded files and I can drag them straight from its main window.
A common storage place is "My Documents, My Downloads".

Thanks for replies. Is there a "download manager" in XP?, if so where do I find it? I haven't installed one. Checked out all the download files, still can't find it!!
