i lost my recycle bin - Page 2

post #11 of 17
did you do what that forum advised? Copy ALL of this :

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\ CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\Advanced\\Folder\\Recycl eBinOnDesktop]
"RegPath"="Software\\\\Microsoft\\\\Windows\\\\Cur rentVersion\\\\Explorer\\\\HideDesktopIcons\\\\New StartPanel"
"Text"="Show Recycle Bin icon on the desktop"
"Type"="checkbox"
"ValueName"="{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}"
"CheckedValue"=dword:00000000
"UncheckedValue"=dword:00000001
"DefaultValue"=dword:00000000
"HKeyRoot"=dword:80000001


into notepad, save it as Recycle.reg. Then double click the newly saved file and say "Yes" on the popup?

You might have deleted registry entries nad this *should* fix it.

After you do that, then do this:

To hide or show the Recycle Bin icon using Folder Options, follow these steps:
1.In Windows Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
2.On the View tab, scroll all the way down and do the following:
- Select the Show Recycle Bin icon on the desktop check box to show the icon on your desktop.
- Clear the Show Recycle Bin icon on the desktop check box to remove the icon from your desktop.
