If you can remember the file’s name, or even the first part, click the magnifying glass (top right hand corner of the screen) and type it in. It will give you a list of suggestions. Double click the one you want and it will open the file.

 if you right click it you can choose to 'show in enclosing folder' which will also show you 'where' it is so you can either move it to the right place or note where to find it
