    Where did my recycle bin go???

    I was downloading something, and when I closed everything, my recycle bin was
    gone, but everything else was still there. Is there a way that I can get it
    back? Or get another one for my desktop?? Please help.

    Right-click the empty Desktop>Personalise>Change Desktop Icons> tick recycle
    bin> apply >OK

    If it is still ticked when you get there>untick it>apply>OK
    Then go back there retick it>apply>OK. .

    Right-click on the Desktop, click Personalize, and in the left pane, click Change desktop icons. In the Desktop Icon Settings dialog, enable the Recycle Bin checkbox. Click OK. See also:

    Well Heaven alone knows if I'll do this correctly, what with having to follow proper etiquette and all !!

    I just wanted to say *Thank You SO Much* to those who responded with such simplicity. Honestly I am just a tad embarrassed now that I 'know' that I didn't find my recycle bin, but I am ever SO grateful, regardless.

    One more time, hopefully no one is put out by my attempt at thanks, but I'm so grateful I had to be sure it was said.
