You may by mistake the “Recycle bin” icon from your laptop or desktop. Here’s how you can get it back.

If you are on windows XP then follow the steps :

1.  Right-click an empty area of your desktop
2. Select Properties
3. Click the Desktop tab
4. Click the Customize button
5. Click Restore Default
6. Exit all windows and restart your computer

Note: Sometimes you may have just hidden the recycle bin and not actually have delete it 🙂

Getting the hidden ‘Recycle Bin’ is fairly easy, but even more easier is to download and install “Tweak UI” one of the ‘Power toys‘ Microsoft lets you download for free officially. Power toys do a lot of quick tricks.

You can find a lot of other downloads which will improve your Windows user experience on the right side bar.
