    If you're a Windows user who has saved a file but lost track of the folder
    it's in, try this. . .

    Look in the Start | Recent Documents folder and see if it's there. If it is,
    right click and select Properties, then click on the 'Find Target' button.
    It'll open Explorer on the folder where it is stored with the file itself

    Why look through all your drives for a file with the same name as the one
    you saved, when you can go straight to the file you want?

    It seems to be beyond most 'contributors' here.

    And what if it's not there? Should we use Evan's idea?

    Yes, if it's not there, you're stuck with Evan's idea.
