Trideon Helping the Technologically challenged,
I have been solving high tech problems in Lansing, MI. since 1997, first as your favorite geek at the Okemos, MI Best Buy. Then on to running my own business. Since I started this little site, thousands of people have learned everything is easier when you have a geek around. I like to think I've inspired them all to be a little more geeky. So bring me your frustrations, worries and especially your questions. I'm here to help.
I would like to thank you for your business and support. Without you this site wouldn't be here. Please have a look around the new site, then goto the facebook page and leave a comment! Keep checking back the changes aren't stopping.

Where did I put that file I just downloaded?
Browsers have a default download location. In Firefox you can bring up a list of downloaded files by pressing Ctrl + J. Right click the file you want, and choose open or open file location. The later will show you the default location Firefox saves anything that you download. If all else fails Windows has a built in file search. Hold down the Windows key + F. Type part or all of the file name in the search box and hit enter.
TIP: In Windows 7 M$ introduced a cool bunch of new filter/find tools. Try clicking the arrow on the Date column. Then choose or drag the date range when the file was modified.
