Windows 7: Temporary Internet Files

11 Dec 2010   #31

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit

I came here looking for this same answer for my fiance who got me Windows 7 64bit and he has it as well. His is different from mine but I helped him with the help of this thread. Thank you. His was the 2nd one listed in the first post but mine was neither of those. Mine is here: C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Temp I found out by dragging an image from the net to an art program and then bringing up the save window but not saving again but looking at where it was temporarily found. Why is it that different Windows 7 users have it in different places? I never told it to be where it is and my fiance never told his to be where his is. Is this random? Wasn't like this in XP. Seems Microsoft really does not want you to find it..

Windows 8 Pro w/MC 32-bit

Find it this way: Tools/Internet Options/Browsing History/Settings/Current Location. It's called "Temporary Internet Files" not "Temp" and the full path is shown under "Current Location". To see it in Windows Explorer you must change the CtrlPanel/Folder/View options to show hidden files AND uncheck "Hide Protected OS files". But you don't have to use Windows Explorer; just use the Internet Options/Browsing History to view or delete the files in groups as listed (cookies, history, temporary files).
