Show deleted files with theirs real names

What happens if an audio file is deleted- i.e. is send to the Recycle Bin [of Windows 10 at least]? Can the user navigate to the Recycle Bin and find it? Yes: the user can use Windows Explorer to go to something like

M:$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-160044429-2404934434-2307701250-1001

and see all of the files with their real names. But what happens when they are loaded to Mp3tag from there? Are they visible on the list in Mp3tag? Yes: but not with their real FILENAMEs but coded ones into something like $RI72H56 or $I73JKA0


So I would like to propose a slight change in how Mp3tag works: so that they files loaded from the Recycle Bin to it would have their real names displayed. The info about those names is apparently at disposal to other pieces of software as the real names are also visible in FreeCommander. But some software also utilizes the same approach as Mp3tag- for example XnView. So it seems that it is a matter of a choice- and what I propose would make Mp3tag slightly more user friendly

what!

just restore them from the recycle bin and then open them
