Windows users are used to seeing two icons on the Windows desktop. The My Computer icon and the Recycle Bin icon. We told you yesterday how you can restore the my computer icon in all Windows operating systems.

This guide is mainly for those users who want a separate article on the subject. The recycle bin icon is not a normal icon that can be deleted easily. It can be removed by programs or by changing specific settings in the operating system. It is furthermore possible to hide it or move it outside of the screen borders so that it appears to not be there even though it is.

Check if the recycle bin icon is hidden or outside the visual screen borders.

  • Right-click the computer desktop and open the View context menu entry.
  • Make sure the Show desktop icons entry is checked
  • Click on auto arrange icons to arrange all icons.
