Recycle bin refuses to come back to desktop

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Mike F from TN, Nov 3, 2007.

  1. Have read several threads on this subject. Tried to reclaim the recycle bin
    by making sure there is a check in the box, as directed by many of you. For
    me, that did not work. The Bin still does not show up on my desktop.

    So, how do I get it back? Once back, I will use the registry fix suggested
    by Ramesh S.

  2. Did you try these ones from Ramesh Srinivasan (MVP)
    Right-click on the Desktop, click Personalize, and in the left pane, click
    Change desktop icons. In the Desktop Icon Settings dialog, enable the
    Recycle Bin checkbox. Click OK. See also:

  3. Problem solved: rebooted, and the bin re-appeared. Then downloaded the
    registry "hide delete" tweak, and all is well. Life is good.

    Let's stop bashing Vista and carry on with life. Neither Vista nor life are
    perfect but we'll get through it. And please, let's stop using Vista as an
    excuse to get into Hitler-bashing. Though he deserves the deepest part of
    hell, diatribes about him and his horrid crimes do not belong on this forum.
