Missing trash icon - ONLY ICON - not trash bin

I know that a lot of people accidentally delete their recycle bin - but in this case I noticed that the icon was missing - and only the icon - the words "recycle bin" are there, and I can open the folder and use the operations, but the picture icon of a trash can is missing. Any ideas?

Hi,


The desktop icon is just that, an Icon (Shortcut) the recycle.bin folder is not deleted.

So, just recreate the icon & your done!
