#1 Restore deleted videos from recycle bin on Windows 11 PC

Discarded files are automatically relocated to the Recycle Bin when Windows shuts down, making it easy to recover if required. While it looks different, the Recycle Bin in Windows 11 functions like the one in Windows 10:

  • Go to your Desktop and double-click the Recycle Bin icon.
  • You may choose the files you wish to restore.
  • To restore a file, right-click on it and select Restore.

The chosen files including videos will be relocated to their original places. Alternatively, you may drag and drop them to another spot, just as you would when copying or transferring files across directories on your system.

Data that have been permanently removed from your computer cannot be recovered via the Recycle Bin, and formatting your storage device will also make it impossible to restore deleted files from that device.

#2 Undo Deleted videos on Windows 11

The Undo tool in Windows allows you to go back and undo any action you've just performed. When using your Windows 11 computer, you make a mistake and delete a file you want to save; this function may help you recover it.

Think about the possibility that you accidentally removed an essential picture from the process of arranging your collection. The only way to reclaim it:

  • The folder where your videos are is vital, so make sure it's in view.
  • On your keyboard, press CTRL + Z.
  • Alternatively, you may use the Undo Delete option by right-clicking anywhere in the folder.
