deleted trash can, how to get it back



Could someone help me here? I just deleted the trash can icon by acccident
and I am unable to find the exe file to replace it back on the desktop.

Does anyone knows how I can do this in Vista-64 Ultimate?

Thanks ahead of time.

- Right-click empty desktop area
- Select Personalize;in te left pane of Personalization window
- Click Change desktop icons
- Mark "Recycle Bin" checkbox under "Desktop icons"

Right click on desktop. Go to personalize. In upper left is "Change Desktop
Icons". Make sure there is a check in recycle bin.
