deleted all accounts to Trash Can, no I cant access Admin area to restore from Trash Can

I deleted all the accounts in my analytics. I assumed I could just go to the trash can and restore the only one I wanted to keep. But with no accounts I do not have an Admin area at the left bottom.

 

Is there anyway around this or do I need to start over.

I went into accounts in the upper left hand corner. Found the account I wanted with a line through it. Navigated into the account and then went to the Trash Can. From there I restored it.

 

I originally went to Admin instead of Accounts.

Thanks for all your help. Worked fantastically once I followed the directions.

Hi @Luca B

If you go to the Admin page in analytics and create a new analytics account should be able to do so via the drop down in the first column labelled ACCOUNT, it should then restore the ability to access the trash can in the Account column so as to select or search for the deleted analytics Account that you want to restore.

Did as you said, created the new account and went to Admin > Trash Can but there was no accounts in there to restore.

here is an Imgur of it:

Worked brilliantly until I got into the Trash Can.  Thanks for your help.

Do you know where I went wrong?

That solution doent work with the new menu-system unfortunally. The account listing doensst exist in the same form so now you gotta go into admin - trashcan. But when account deleted - trashcan aint active ...
