I use outlook express for my mail communication purpose. I am facing a problem. I open an email and download an important excel/word file from attachment and also edit on the downloaded file. Then I save it but I don’t show any specific path. I see the file is saved. But where it has gone and saved, I could not find out.
Facing problem to save an attachment file from MS outlook
Usually when we receive an email having an attachment, we double click the attachment and edit it. But it doesn't mean if you have changed the contents of the file, those changes have been made in the attachment as well. It is not possible. So, the best solution is to save the file before making any changes in it. Open Outlook Express and select Save Attachments from File menu. Select the attachment (in case of multiple attachments) and select the window folder where you want to save the file. Save the attachment and then open the file from that location and edit it.
But in case if you have forgotten saving your attachment even then fortunately, you can find your lost file. Go to Control Panel (Classic View is preferred) and click Internet Options. Make sure General tab is selected, then click Settings under Temporary Internet Files. Click View Files and try to find your edited copy of the attachment in Temporary Internet Files. If File Path is not specified it means the file saved in this folder. I hope it would help.
