Home premium I guess. I just bought it recently and the trash can got deleted
by accident of the desktop. Siomething that hasn't before happened on the
other versions of windows. I tryed looking in c:windows but can't find it.
Any help will be really appreciate so If one knows how I can fix this please
let me know because I really don't want to have to do pc recovery and loose
everything. Thanks for reading even if you don't know the answer but If you
do and answer Thanks a Million.

Sherry;
Right click somewhere on the Desktop and click Personalize.
On the left side click "change Desktop icons"
Place a check by "Recycle bin"
Click OK.

If it is checked, uncheck, press OK and reboot.
Then go back, place the check and click OK.

Ok Sherry,
Click start, then click Computer. On the left you'll see a drop down list...
at the very bottom you will see Recycle Bin. Simply drag it onto the
desktop. Your done.

Hi Sherry,

This tutorial will show you how to restore the Recycle Bin back to the desktop. Just select it.

This tutorial will show you how to fix the Recycle Bin if the icon stays full even though you emptied it. Sometimes this happens when the recycle bin gets deleted.
