Check that the folder on the tablet that you think the doc's are in is the correct one. The doc's could have gone to either the tablets built in storage or to a external SD card, the folder could have the same name in both places. For example the photo's could be going to the external SD while the docs are still at the default setting and going to the tablets internal storage.

Alternatively if you have Dropbox, google plus or similar cloud storage then you can send it there from the tablet and access it via the desk top. In fact if you have it set up to automatically upload whenever there is a wifi connection you will never have to plug the tablet into the pc and search.

Next option if your printer is wifi capable, you can just print directly from the tablet.

A truly devout technophobe would probably just email it to themselves.

Not sure if this will help, but generally if you right click on a file etc and open properties there is a file location listed.
