I have opened a hotmail ppt attachment, made multiple changes and hit the save button . The file appeared to save and did not request a location. I then shut the computer down and have just returned to find the file is either gone or not locatable. I was using hotmail, IE7, and Vista. I have searched the files using the "search" function and can't find it anywhere, including files in "browsing history".

You probably hit "run" when opening it for the first time.

In this case it would be a temporary file.

If you are using vista it would be in C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Local\Temp

To be clearer:

If you hit open, it opens as a temp file, saving itself to the default directory. When you save it, it saves it in that same directory.

You must hit save when opening for the first time, select the directory to save it in and then open it. When you save it using this method, it will indeed be saved to the location you've selected.

Helpful, but have just tried that and it doesn't seem to be stored there. Any other options ?
