How Do I Recover a Project in Figma?

Using Figma to design a product can be a great way to bring your ideas to life. However, you may experience a situation where you need to recover a project in Figma.

If this happens, the first thing you should do is check your Activity Log. You can find this by opening the File Menu in the top left corner of your screen and selecting “Activity Log” from the list of options. This log will show all changes made to files in your account that have occurred over the past 60 days, so if something has been deleted or lost it should appear here.

If what you’re looking for isn’t in the Activity Log, then you should check your Browser History. You can open this by pressing CTRL + H on Windows or CMD + H on Mac.

This will open a window with all of the websites that have been visited on that browser over the past week or so. Check through this list for any Figma links and see if they contain what you’re looking for.

If neither of these options works, then it might be time to contact Figma Support. To do this, open the Help Center from either the main menu or from within your project file and select “Contact Support” at the bottom of the page. You can then submit a request for assistance with recovering any lost files.


Recovering a project in Figma is possible with some effort and research. If what you’re looking for isn’t found in either your Activity Log or Browser History, then contact Figma Support with a request for assistance.
