Remember that items in the Recycle Bin have not been permanently deleted. You can still retrieve them and move them to other places on your system. To do this, use the mouse to drag the object from the Recycle Bin to another location on your system.
If you want to quickly undelete an item to its original location on your system, you can do so by opening the Recycle Bin, right-clicking on the item, and choosing Restore from the resulting Context menu.
