a very obvious question which is.. did you save it in your computer? you may also check the recent docs you opened by going to file>recent

Another option is to check Temp folder.
Open Explorer and type in address bar
hit Enter.

Following up on koolkat's suggestion of looking at Files, Recent, I would suggest you go to Windows Explorer and look in your actual "Recent Items" folder in your C: drive, because there you will find ALL of your recent (and not so recent) items. The "Recent Items" folder can be found by following this path: C:\Users\{name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent
