Stonehkm posted on the CNET forums after accidentally deleting the recycle bin in
One day, I did the right click on the recycle bin and, unlike XP, there is a ''delete'' option.
I blinked and clicked this, instead of ''empty."
Now how the heck do I re-install the recycle bin?
John Wilkinson posted the answer in the forums. Here it is.
The "Delete" option when right-clicking the Recycle Bin is new, giving you the option of
removing the shortcut from your desktop easily.
But that's all it does, remove the shortcut. The recycle bin is there. So all you need to do
is restore the shortcut to your desktop.
Go to the Windows button, aka start menu.
Choose control panel.
Choose Appearance and Personalization.
Chose "Change desktop icons," from the left-hand column.
From there, just check Recycle Bin and click OK.
Your recycle bin should reappear.
