You may be able to find it as a temp file under your Temporary Internet Files folder, but that's a long shot in my mind.

I said that you may be able to find it there, not that it was guaranteed. As for a name, I would imagine it would be a random string of letters and numbers. I'm not 100% sure though as I tend to find it much quicker just to rewrite whatever it was I'd lost.

If Wordpad saved temporary files anywhere it would be in the systems Temp folder, not the Temporary Internet Files folder.

That said, Wordpad doesn't Save any kind of backup for your file. If you didn't save it, it's gone.
