Windows 7: Cannot find downloaded files... XD

Windows 7
 
 
Cannot find downloaded files... XD

Saved some files to folder I have in Program Files but when I go there, the files are not there.



But if I try to download something else to the folder, the files I have previously downloaded show up in the list of things in there. It's like they're invisible except that folder is set to show all hidden files. They don't show up in search results either.


Someone told me Windows 7 defaults to a download folder in your user profile in documents but I've searched there and found nothing.

I wasn't aware you could download to a system file . why would you download to programe files and not downloads or a different file of your choosing, not being critical just interested!

Like when you tell someone to make sure their monitor is plugged in and they say "oh, it suddenly started working for no reason. Bye."
