Right-click on the file Dec 16, 2015

and select "Download" in the drop-down menu. This will open a dialog box "Save as", where you can specify the location on your PC.

Thanks, but the problem is Dec 16, 2015

that when I download it, it goes to some other invisible drive, not my PC. Any ideas?

Obvious question... Dec 16, 2015

... but have you checked your Downloads folder? That's where files default to if I download from Google Drive.

Results! Dec 16, 2015

I found them on a search of my PC. It didn't even give me the path where they were located, but I was able to Save As. Thanks one and all!
