    Right click on the desktop. Go to personalize. Click on "Change Desktop
    Icons: in left pane. Place a tick in the box for recycle bin.

    Then, go here to get the fix to remove the "delete" choice from recycle bin
    so it doesn't happen again.

    Right click the desktop and select Personalize. On the left side, click
    Change Desktop Icons and place a check mark in the Recycle Bin. Apply/OK.

    You can remove the delete command from the right click menu on the Recycle
    Bin icon.


    Hide the "Delete" command from Recycle Bin context menu

    Re: cant find my trashcan

    The other one would be to give Windows Explorer a default listing of Name,
    Size, Date Created, Date Modified and Type instead of this Rating, Tags etc
    etc for ALL Explorer Windows. I sometimes wonder if MS have any idea of the
    time it takes to change each and every folder!
