How to Recover Accidentally Deleted Files in Windows 10

On a Windows 10 desktop, I unintentionally removed a folder. I can't discover any files in my Trash. There are all 243 files, but none of them would open. They are all jpeg, png, cr2, dng, mov, and mp4 files with the appropriate icons. However, I receive the error 'It appears we don't accept this file format' on each and every one of them!
