Lost trash can - what to do?
So I just noticed there's no trash can icon on my laptop's desktop anymore. I guess I've removed it accidentally.
So what's now? Can I bring it back to my desktop and where the files that I remove go now? I have Windows Vista.
1. Click on Vista's blue Start button and then click on "Help and Support".
2. Type RECYCLE BIN in the Search box, press the Enter key.
3. Click on "Show or hide the Recycle Bin".
4. Follow the self-help instructions.
I have a MAC but this is what I found in a vista help forum
Ok that helped a lot. Thanks!
Did it work?
Here is an example with graphical interfact :D
To me this seems like a step backwards for Vista. On Windows XP, there is no "Delete" item when you right click on your desktop Recycle Bin. On Vista there is.
Not only is that potentially confusing, but even when you do understand the difference, you know what's going to happen.
•Right click on your desktop Recycle Bin in Windows Vista and you'll get this popup:
And it works. Click on Delete and you get this message:
The problem of course is that we're so used to these popup confirmations that we often fail to notice or read them. I know I frequently mutter to myself "yeah, yeah, whatever" and press enter or click Yes without paying attention.
Whoops. The Recycle Bin disappeared.
But as you can see, the message gives the clue we need.
So, we dutifully fire up Control Panel and click on the Personalization options:
At least that part is easier than Windows XP.

Thanks Jehanzeb, it helped :D.
And that's annoying, I've almost deleted my recycle bin for several times when I've tried to empty it.
Yeah that's another annoying feature from Vista. I am glad it has been sorted
