Hi, can you not download the same file again, and this time when asked for a location, choose Desktop.
It will then be easy to find.

Hi tricia321, try searching by name for the file originally downloaded, this may show all locations for the file including your unzipped one. If not unzip it again to a known location.
Regards, yaesu

Do a search on Date or Size

Have a look in your My Documents and in any sub folders.

I always download stuff to the Desktop. You can shift it to somewhere else later but at least you can find it easily on the desktop when you first try it out.
