Man you guys start drinkin early over there !! If he knew the answer I don`t think he`d be asking !!!

Try this, if you still can`t find it, download it again. This time wait to see where it will go before you just go and click save.

I much prefer to download everything to the default Downloads folder (you can even set this to display, either as a link or a cascading menu, on the right-hand panel of the Start Menu - see: Start Menu - Customize) as it is then relatively easy to find things (and move them to wherever you want), even when the folder is getting full (as mine is) since you know that that is the only place you need to look. Plus, it is easy enough to set up a custom scan of that folder should you wish to check for malware in anything you download (although I recommend that you do so explicitly on each new download, unless you trust its source).

OK what browser are you using. if it is ff you can check the downloads manager, also in IE you can check the downloads via the cog icon.
then select the download and in ff its a right click and open folder location, in IE its cog/ view downloads and under the location tab click it to open the location.
if its chrome then someone else can tell you as i wont use it.

What Dwarf suggests makes sense.

Just delete the folder you named New Folder and let all your downloads default to the Downloads folder.

Download the file again to the Downloads folder. At least you'll know where it is then.
