How To Add The Recycle Bin Icon On Desktop In Window 7

There are various ways to add the Recycle Bin icon to your desktop but this is how I find it to be the most easy one under Windows 7. You will do this by changing the Desktop Icons Settings. Although, not all of you find this useful there will be persons who will want to keep the Trash Can empty all the time (For those of you who didn’t know, pressing Shift+Delete will delete the files completely instead of moving them in your Recycle Bin).

Here are the steps to adding a Trash Can icon to your desktop under Windows 7:

  1. Click the “Start” button and in the field named “Search Programs and Files.” Type the “desktop icons” words.

  2. Click the “Show or Hide Common Icons on the Desktop” to be able to select from the search results

  3. Notice that, on the side of the “Recycle Bin”, is an empty box. Click it to check it. This will add the Recycle Bean on your desktop.

  4. At the end click the “OK” button to complete the process.

So, the next time you want to delete something simply by dragging it into the Recycle Bin here is the way to have  this at your side
