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

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!
