    Where to find the downloaded files if it is disappeared from Mac?

    Last week I remember downloading a software which was really helpful but the problem now is the file is missing. It was actually in the downloaded section and now I am not able to find it. Where to find it now? Checked in trash and it’s not there too. I can download the file again but I forgot the name of that application. Can you please give me a solution for this problem?

    Hello dear..............
    First of all for downloading you have to use an Browser or third party app. so first see the downloads history in your web browser.
    Then you can see the name of the software and time of download there and right click on it and tap on Show in folder.
    If you had moved it somewhere,then you got the name from above step, Use search box and type the name and locate it.

    Thankyou..................

    Re: Where to find the downloaded files if it is disappeared from Mac?

    as far as concern to your query first of all:-

    1) open the home page of your mac then find the folder of downloads there you will get all your downloaded folder.
    2) if you cant find them then it depends on your site what you are using like google chrome, IE etc
    3) if you are using google chrome then you can see your downloading history from customize and control google chrome and then click on the downloads option
    4)if you are using firefox then you can see your downloading history from an arrow which yuo can find at the above (see all downloads).

    Thank you
    hope this will be helpful to you

    Dear Friend..

    If you unable to find the details of downloaded file, then you are left with only two options:-

    1. Search in your Mac finder
    2. Find in your Downloaded history.

    Solutions:-

    1. If you want the file, then go to your Apple start-up menu and click on the finder option.
    Here you need to type the name of the file or software and press the find or search option, few secs later, you will get the file and its location.

    2. If this medium doesn't work, then go to your browser and click on the setting option.
    Now press CTRL+H key combined and you will get the history,
    Here you can search the file with its date, timing and website name.
    When you get the details, go to that website and download the file again.

    Simple !!!
    Thank you ...
