Restore Files from Recycle Bin in Windows 8
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Crystal, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to restore files from the Recycle Bin on a Windows 8 computer.
The first thing that we're going to do is create a file to delete for the sake of the tutorial
We're going to do this by right-clicking on an empty space, hovering over "New" and clicking "Text Document". It doesn't matter what we call it.
We have to delete it by moving it to the Recycle Bin
Once this is done, there are two ways to restore the file from the Recycle Bin.
One way is to double-click the Recycle Bin icon to open it
Then right-click on the file(s) and click "Restore"
Another way to do this (if we know the previous location of the file) is to open it in the File Explorer and move it there
For example, it was on the desktop, so we're going to drag and drop it to the desktop. It will be restored.
We can now close the Recycle Bin window
This concludes the tutorial on how to restore files from the Recycle Bin on a Windows 8 computer
