How to Restore Something You Deleted


You are here:

With Windows operating systems, when you delete or remove a program, file or document it goes into the Recycle Bin. Windows stores the file there until you restore the file or empty the Recycle Bin. Files in the Recycle Bin have not been deleted completely from your computer. You can set computer preferences to delete files from your Recycle Bin when you log out, so be sure to restore your file as soon as you know you need it.

  • Open the “Recycle Bin” on your desktop. A list of deleted items will appear.
  • Right-click on the file or item you want to recover. A context menu will appear.
  • Click the “Restore” button. The deleted file will be put back in its original location.
  • You can also open the Recycle Bin and select “Restore all Items” if you would like to restore all the items i the Recycle Bin.
