So, the recycle bin is missing from your Windows Desktop. Where did it go? As you probably know, you cannot delete it from the desktop, so a setting must be screwed up in Windows that caused it to disappear. here's how to restore it.
Try right-clicking your desktop and selecting "properties." On the window that comes up, select the "desktop" tab, then click "customize desktop." On the next window, select "recycle bin (full)" and click "restore default," then repeat with "recycle bin (empty)."
if that does not work, download TweakUI (from Microsoft), install it. Run TweakUI from your Start Menu, In Tweak UI, just left-click "desktop" (not the + sign) and you'll see a list of desktop options. Make sure that Recycle Bin is checked.
