Finding A Missing Computer File

If you are lucky, the missing file or program simply needs to be searched for properly. Luckily, most computers come with a lot of tools that can help.

We’d first recommend looking through the Recycle Bin/Trash on your device. Many times the file was accidentally deleted and sent there. You can restore the file from there. Next, try looking in some other areas on the device where you may have accidentally saved the file. We recommend setting up a computer structure that makes saving/finding things easier to find.

If that doesn’t work either, try opening whatever program was used to save the file. Whether it is Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop or even Google Chrome. Many times files are just saved somewhere you weren’t expecting.

Lastly, you can try the search function on your device. Simply type in the name of the file and you should be able to find the exact location.
