    Can't find downloaded program

    I downloaded a program (Skype) and I can't find it. I would like to add it to my start menu but I am not sure how to find it to do that. Can anyone help?

    If you chose to save the download then it should be in your downloads folder which is usually c:\users\<name>\download. If you didn't choose to save it then it's probably in some temporary folder. The filename is something like SkypeSetup.exe or SkypeSetupFull.exe.

    well , you wouldn't put it in your start menu untill its installed ,having said that if you didn't download it but chose install ,it went to a temp folder and then installed ,it would/should already be in you start menu ,
    , so just go to search and type in Skype should show up, if not its not installed yet ,just go re-download it and take notice of where its going by choosing check download the dialog box on the screen
