Deleted Icons from Public\Desktop not found in Recycled Bin

Hi,
 
 I am using Windows 7. When each new user account is created, it copes all those icons (from C:\Uses\Public\Desktop) to the new user desktop.
 So I went to C:\Uses\Public\Desktop, selected all icons there and deleted them.
 However when I wanted to restore some of them from Recycled Bin, I can't find any of the deleted icons from C:\Uses\Public\Desktop.

 How can I restore what I deleted? I thought whatever you delete on local computer/drive stays in the Recycled Bin.

Unless you "shift-delete" them...that bypasses the recycle bin. Also, recycle bins are user specific...are you checking the recycle bin while logged in as the same useraccount that was used to delete them?

That is a strange part. I did not hold down "Shift" key and I logged in as same account that I used to delete public desktop icons.
