How to Recover Your Recycle Bin if You Accidentally Deleted it from Windows 7 Desktop
My former boss called me up one morning asking how to restore the Recycle Bin. Somehow (don’t ask me how) he had deleted the recycle bin from his desktop. This was the second time he had done this but it was my first time to get such a request.
After a little searching on Google, I managed to fix the problem. I will show you how in this hub.
The process is the same restoring the Recycle Bin on Windows Vista.
Restoring the Recycle Bin
The first thing you need to do is right click on the desktop. A dropdown menu will appear, select Personalize. This will take you to the Appearance and Personalization section of the Control Panel.
On the top left side. There will be a link to Change Desktop Icons. Click on that link and it should open the Desktop Icon Settings box.
Now make sure that the Recycle Bin option is checked (ticked). Then click on Apply and OK. Close all the windows and check the desktop to see if the Recycle Bin is back.
