    Restore Recycle Bin to Desktop in Windows 7

    Hi,

    I was putting some files in the Recycle Bin and lost the Recycle Bin icon. I tried to restore the icon by going to Personalize, but the directions there did not restore the Recycle Bin icon. Can someone instruct me on how to restore this icon?

    Thank you.

    Control Panel -> Personalization -> Desktop Icon Settings
    I've been there, done that, restored the can!

    Roland, thank you for your help. I tried what you suggested and got the recycle bin back.
