Please click on Start, then Search.

Please enter %temp% then press enter.

See if you can find the file as a temp in your computer.

Let me know if you were able to find it.

If you have any questions, please reply and I will assist you.

Still I cannot find 'search' and %temp% !


It is a Dell computer in a univ computer station.

There is a 'search' section but nothing comes out as I type '%temporary% ! It appears that I have to find out if the Univ runs a back-up service. Thanks, in any case.

Please type %temp% only, not the full word.
