Go to Recycle Bin -> locate your deleted file -> Right click on the file -> Restore.

Use File History to restore deleted PDF Files:

Previous version is the built-in feature of the Windows system that helps you recover lost files by retrieving the folders that were present when File History was enabled.

Note: The Previous Version doesn’t work if you did not enable the File History function before losing the PDF file.

If you have enabled the File History, follow the steps: Right-click on the folder where the deleted PDF files were saved -> Select Restore from the previous versions -> Select the recent saved version of the file -> Click Restore button.
