So I am following these instructions to retrieve deleted photos:

It says under "View Deleted Photos" : Click the "MY Photos" Icon.  Where is this??

MY PHOTOS is in Lightroom (for the cloud), the desktop app. If you are using Lightroom Classic then you are looking at tutorials for the wrong program. You can blame Adobe for their naming convention.

OH!  Well thank you for the answer.  Is there any way I can retrieve my photos that I deleted from my hard drive and from my library?  Or once I delete it, its lost forever?

go to trash or recycle bin and move the deleted photos to a new location on your hard drive. Than reimport images back into LRC.

When you choose to delete images in Lightroom, and choose the option to delete from disk, they are sent to the trash or the Recycle Bin (depending on your operating system). If you haven't emptied that depository recently been you should be able to recover them from there. That means it will be necessary to import them to Lightroom again and edit them agaiin.

I have the same problem as Randy. I had photos highlighted for Sync purposes. From these I deleted what I believe is one photo but all highlighted images got deleted. They're not in Recycle Bin, so for my money floating somewhere in Lightroom. Any idea how I can find them again in EDITED form? This is the 2nd time it's happened to me. I'm convinced that  when you delete multiple images which are highlighted, you don't get the message "permanent delete" or "Just from LR". As is the case for single images.

Are you using Lightroom or Lightroom Classic? What exact version number? If you are using LrC and you delete images and choose the option to delete permanently, the images are sent to the trash or to the recycle bin. If you are using Lightroom then images are sent to the "Deleted" folder within Lightroom itself where they are retained for 60 days. You can go to that folder and restore the images if you choose to do so and then download them, or you can just leave them there for the 60 days after which they will automatically be deleted permanently, or there is an option for you to delete them permanently at any time.
