right click on the desktop and select paste - does this put the folder back on the desktop?

If you are lucky, it might have put the file(s) in a temp buffer before pasting them.
On search enter temp and select show all files including hidden and system files.

Look for files with the date you deleted them, to see if you can recover them.

As a safety precaution always COPY and paste - then when successful you can delete the original files/s
