I downloaded a Word file online, but instead of saving it somewhere, I chose just to open it. I then made a bunch of changes, saved by pressing Ctrl-S, and exited. I've done this before, assuming that the file was gone. But does the modified Word file exist anywhere on the hard drive? Isn't there some folder where I could find the document with the changes I made? Thanks to whoever helps out.
Location:My own little corner of the universe (somewhere in Alabama). It's OK, they know me here

After you made the changes and saved it, where on the hard drive did you save it to?
That's where it should be. If you have no idea where it might be, and you know the name of the file, you could do a search for it. (Start menu/Search option)
That's the problem. I don't know where I saved it to, since I just pressed Ctrl-S. Also, the file was from a professor's web page, so I'm not sure of the exact file name. Where would the folder for temporary internet files usually be?
Yes, it can be on recent files on word or go to drive C then documents and settings then click on your user name then go to local settings ( if this does not appear then go to tools then folder options and then view and show hidden files) then go to temp and try finding it there. OR go to search and type in the document's name and find it OR download it again
