Yes, it's in a temp folder.   When you open a file attached to an email, it's a good idea to save it to a location like My Document/Documents or the Desktop.    Think of the attachment on an email as in the email and not on the computer.  When you open the attachment, Windows needs to put it someplace so it can be opened from the computer, so it puts it in a temp folder and immediately opens it from there.   So when you click "save", it saves the changes to the file in the temp folder.      Just get in a habit of opening the attachment and immediately "save as" to the location you want to save it to.

So does that mean I can just do a search on my local system and find the document in the temp folder??  also is it still a doc file??

Yes a search can work and it should still be a DOC.

You can also reopen the file (the attachment), then choose "Save As" in Word,  then whatever folder "Save As" opens to is where that file is (unless you have saved something else since then)
