Assuming from what you said you have a dual boot on your laptop, downloaded using windows, rebooted into linux on same machine.
If these things are not true disregard following :P
If you have already downloaded it to the laptop (Seems you have) you need to mount the partition that the file is located on.
Right click on desktop for menu, under system select(click on) Mount Tool.
It will say fd0 and underneath it unmounted(This is default)
Click on where it says fd0 and cycle through till you find the partition you are looking for.
On my dual boot machine its hda1 yours may be different. When you get to the appropriate partition click where it says unmounted(If it says mounted there is no need) It should change to mounted.
Browse to the file and either run it from there or copy it to your home dir(Normally).
The rest will greatly depend on what type of file it is.
If you still need assistance give us more information about the file and its type and of course is it a binary or source code app.
Like is it a .zip, .tar, .tar.gz, etc...
Hope this helps
