Where is Recycle Bin?


M

ms

W2KPro, SP4
recent install
I never use the Recycle Bin icon on Desktop, so Tweakui removed it.

I searched my partitions, no Recycle Bin. Nothing has been installed
that would remove it. I show all hidden files.

Files delete in the normal way, but to where? Where is the Recycle Bin?

This is rather confusing.

You combined my text, so it would appear confusing.

The icon is separate, the actual folder is what my question was about.

This is what I said:
About the icon-
I never use the Recycle Bin icon on Desktop, so Tweakui removed it.
In a separate paragraph, this was about the folder:
I searched my partitions, no Recycle Bin. Nothing has been installed that would remove it. I show all hidden files.
This was a separate statement:
Files delete in the normal way, but to where? Where is the Recycle Bin?

No one has answered my question.

It's gone You removed it.

The files are deleted since there is no recycle bin.

Browse to C: click Tools, Folder Options, View. Tick the radio button
that says 'Show hidden files and folders' and OK. Now you should see a
fodler in C:\ that is called Recycler. go in there and you'll see the
Recycle Bin identified by it's Descriptor.

It takes more than that. The Recycler folder also has the System
Attribute, so you need to uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".
Windows complains when you do that, but ignore it. It's always whining
about something.

Thanks to all. See below--

I had done that long ago, and the Bin was not showing. I did restore the
*icon* to the desktop, the Bin *folder* still did not show.

Last night I shut down. This AM, cold boot, finally the Bin folder shows.

Thanks, that will help.

Thank you for the correction. I already had 'protect os files' showing
on my system when I checked (wanting to see every file and extension is
an old tech legacy habit left over from the Win9x days) B-)
