    Once we find it, press down on the icon and that will allow us to enter the application
    .
    In this video tutorial, we want to show you how to restore files from the bin in this application. This is because when we delete things in the Photos application, we do not completely delete them. Rather, we send them to a bin and there, they stay for some time and then they are deleted. This gives us the opportunity to restore files if we deleted them and later we want to restore them.
