C:\Users\latha\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\TempState\Downloads\J&J Fireplace replacement letter.odt does not exist. I have saved other documents and can open them. I am not sure what I did wrong with this document.

If a file is reported to not exist it's most likely it doesn't exist - in the given location with the given name. It may have been moved or renamed. Did you already check the pathname using your file manager (Win Explorer)?
By the way: The pathname is uselessly bloated.

The pathname isn't just bloated: it's that user made a great mistake using a temporary file (i.e., had been asked to save a downloaded file or to open it (from a temporary storage); answered "Open" -> meaning "it may be dismissed after I look at it"; worked with the file and saved some changes; and was surprised that the file had vanished later).

In Windows Explorer, top right if in windows 10, there is a search window, as there is in all file managers, somewhere, they can search in a folder or the whole disk. By using the wildcard * in all file managers, you could put in Firepla. which will search for all files starting with Firepla, they will show up, and will let open it, and will also show you the path to them. Good Luck.
