Windows 7: Internet Explorer download location?

Internet Explorer download location?


Where does it save files that are Run, not Saved? I've tried Google, but it only gives me instructions on how I change the save location.
I've looked through the temporary folder, but my requested file isn't there.

Temporary internet files are located in:

C:\Users\(User name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

To see this folder, you must change your folder view

From any folder, click on organize, on drop down menu choose folder and search options. Click on view tab, scroll down and put check next to show hidden files, folders, and drives. Also untick Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).

Now temp internet files can be seen in

C:\Users\(User name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

I suggest not leaving Hide protected operating system files (Recommended). unticked.
