Hello, hope someone can help, I have received a spreadsheet in an email, and have opened it, edited it, saved it (by pressing CTRL + S), but I don't know where it has saved. I know I should have copied it to a folder first before editing/saving.

It's always a good idea to select where you want to save a document instead of just letting it be saved in a default location.

Have you looked inside the DOCUMENTS folder for it?

Hi deejaysonic, and welcome to TSG.

Does the file show up in the spreadsheet program's list of recently used files and can you open it? If not, it may have been automatically deleted when you closed the email program.

Depending on your email program, it may have saved the file in a temporary folder before calling on the spreadsheet to open it. The spreadsheet program most likely saved the file to the same folder. Depending on your privacy and security settings, the files in the temporary folder may get deleted when the program is closed.

Not sure if any file recovery program would help. Let us know what email program you use and maybe someone here can suggest a recovery program to get back the temporary files.
