We have shown you recently how to bring back the my computer icon and recycle bin icon on the computer desktop. The recycle bin is however missing from the left sidebar in Windows Explorer. The following guide explains how to display the recycle bin in the left sidebar in Windows Explorer.
If you take a look at the standard sidebar in Windows Explorer you notice that it contains links to Favorites, Libraries, Homegroup, Computer and Network links and folders.
A right-click on some elements, like the libraries or favorites, opens the possibility to add a new location to those entries but there is no apparent way of adding the recycle bin to any section in Windows Explorer.
There is however an easy option to display the recycle bin. Right-click a blank spot in the left Explorer sidebar and select the Show all folders option from the opening context menu.
This changes the layout of the Windows Explorer sidebar quite a bit as you can see in the screenshot below.
Only two groups are shown in the new sidebar, the favorites and the desktop. Desktop contains the libraries, homegroup, computer and network settings as well as links to the control panel and the recycle bin.
You can revert the changes by right-clicking a blank spot again and clicking on the show all folders link.
