    To find a file in your conversation history:

    1. Sign in to Skype.
    2. Type what you're looking for in the global search field, then click Search messages.
    3. The file you were sent will appear in the conversation window.
    4. After you locate the file, click the Reveal File in Folder button to show where the file is located, or Quick Look File button to preview the file.

    To find a file in your received files folder:

    1. In Skype, click Preferences.
    2. Under General, check Save files in, which will show you where your files are saved.
