    Lost the trash can (XP-Pro)

    Hi All,
    Somehow my trash can has disappeared. Any help in where I can find it and how to restore it? Sounds silly, I know-but I can't find a RecycleBin on any of my drives. I DO have show ALL files, and DON'T hide extension or other things.

    Are you sure it is not hiding under another icon?

    TweakUI had that option (show/hide Recycle Bin icon).
    If you didn't download it, click on Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP and wait until... April 2002.

    Definitely NOT hiding under other icons.
    Even looking in Explorer you do not see Recycle bin on the drives.

    <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> This is Microsoft we're talking about - April most likely means somewhere around April, May, perhaps June, who knows...

    If you'd like to grab the previous version that was available for download before it was yanked for re-tooling, I have it posted at my website - for this very reason. I can always find it when I need it! Click on the heading for the XP Power Toys and have fun....sorry for the layout of the page, I've been too lazy to fix it, but....if ya get what ya need, can you let me slide? <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
