The file will be located in a folder somewhere in
C:\Users\(youraccount)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet
Files\

"\AppData" is normally hidden
"\Temporary Internet Files" is normally a hidden protected Operating System
file

You'll have to remove the checkmark (if they're hidden) in Windows Explorer:
Organize - Folder & Search Options - View

Good luck in finding it, though.

The correct way is to save the attachment first, then open it
from the saved location, if you wish to edit it.

Is it available using the file menu, top right, for the most recently accessed files.?

I should maybe mention I hav'n't used Word for donkey's years, but Works does that. !

Suggestion only :
Open MS Word > click the Office button > right side, under Recent Documents, do you see the doc you were editing ?

Want to send an attachment on an email reply
I cannot see how to do this. Yes, I can right-click a file and choose to email it but it always goes to a new email, not to the one I'm replying to. I can work around it with the copy and paste routine. That sends the file as a picture on the email - not as an attachment.
