Assuming that you're using Firefox - go to the Edit menu ==> preferences
You can configure your download options there

If you are searching for a file downloaded from firefox, follow this
firefox -> tools -> downloads
A window opens with all downloaded files
to open any file ......
right click on your particular file -> open or open containing folder.

NOTE: if you set clear history, this information will erased by browser. In this case, find the downloads directory by following post#2, post#3 . manually find your file !
