I don’t know whether you know it or not, every document has different versions if you have edited it more than once. By knowing this, you can recover the deleted files in Windows 10 by creating new files with the same names as the old ones. For example, if you lost a Microsoft Word document named as "my-resume", then you need to create a new Word document with the same name. Next, right-click on the Word document and select "Properties". In the new window, click "Previous Versions" tab. Select one of the previous version and click "Restore" to recover the deleted file to your Windows 10 PC.

To be honest, sometimes this way works and you can try your luck. However, it is risky. The files you deleted on your Windows 10 are not disappear right away after the deletion. They are somewhere on your computer waiting to be overwritten by new data. If you create new data, then these deleted files may disappear permanently.
