    Something screwed up. I deleted the present recycle icon (that looked like the explorer icon) and then went to pin the desktop recycle bin icon to Start. However, after several tries, it never pinned to Start???
    You should have followed the advice Shawn gave you in pointing you to the guide I was already reflecting on in my posts earlier where you right click on the Recycle Bin shortcut on the desktop not to pin but to either see a new shortcut made of that and then hide the first. You can then rename the "Recycle Bin shortcut" to Recycle Bin and drag it into the new folder like "Trash Can" you create on C: and then select the new toolbar option when right clicking on the taskbar to select the new folder while having the taskbar unlocked. That will allow you to move the Recycle Bin around a bit.

    Or as the guide explains there simply create the new folder with whatever name you prefer and simply drag the original Recycle Bin shortcut itself into the folder which automatically creates a new shortcut as explained in the guide. You can also hide the folder title as well as text for the Recycle when right clicking on the new toolbar to check or uncheck those items to see only the icon appear on the taskbar. The new toolbar method also works for having a Quick Launch or "Quick Bar" folder where you have a new jump list of desktop shortcuts all contained in a new dropdown menu from the taskbar rather then a desktop full of clutter!

    Thanks for the help, guys, but I'm a little slow on the up take. Here's what's happening lately. Window 10 gremlins appear to be at work. After stating that I couldn't get the Recycle bin into Start, this morning after bootup I tried again and this time. rather unexpectedly, the RB icon did appear within Start. Dragged it onto the Desktop and created a shortcut. Then when selecting Properties, rather unexpectedly there was Shell32 and replaced it with imageres.dll. Unlocked the toolbar and tried dragging the shortcut icon onto the toolbar where I had placed my other program application shortcut icons, but it wouldn't stick. However, it did stick on the left side of the TB, in the space between the toolbar proper (had this toolbar previously aligned so that the icons would be in the middle and not to one side) and the three default icons on the far left. Furthermore, and I have no idea what this is, there is a folder (apparently non-functioning) just to the left of the RB icon and there now is a CTI folder on the desktop. I'd like to have the RB icon in with the other apps icons and get rid of the unknow folder and the CTI folder...please advise.

    Well for one you don't "drag" anything onto the taskbar but right click on a shortcut to see it pinned instead. This is where you got into trouble.

    As for the folder now being seen on the desktop you apparently dragged that from it's original location onto the desktop which is found under your user account. With two Explorer windows open and knowing the original location for the folder if not something just created you can drag the folder back to where it came from.

    As for the shortcut of the Pinned to Start Recycle Bin you ended up with a new toolbar anyways but not the preferred end result you would have seen by simply following the instructions in the guide posted! The steps in the guide have been proved to work as the author double and triple checks things. What else can be said.

    And as for the mishap with the shortcut that can be deleted since it is only an extra shortcut while the CFI folder? is certainly far more unknown to any of us without examining the contents of your drive there as well as the programs installed to identify what that could belong to. If you have a family member or close friend who has a bit of experience and can take a first hand look or you can post screens of how that appears that would be a help in how to go about advising you on how to see that cleared up.

    It seems you may have dropped the Recycle Bin shortcut into the CTI, (Center Taskbar Icons), folder which should be residing in your documents folder.
    Start from scratch; this may help:

    Success at last! Just want to again sincerely thank you guys for hanging in there with me while I floundered around. I'm not a computer maven, but I very much enjoy tuning my browser (Firefox) and Windows GUI so that they look and act exactly the way I want them to. BTW, before we end this session, am I right in assuming that: 1-The original desktop Recycle Bin Icon can't be removed from the desktop (like to keep a clean desktop)? 2-The Recycle Bin icon that now resides next to Task View Button can't be placed into my line up of taskbar program icons?

    When simply right clicking on the original Recycle Bin icon you can create the new "shortcut to recycle bin" shortcut you rename after first taking care of hiding the original by way of the right click on desktop, selecting the Personlize option to go from there into Themes and the Desktop icon settings option as seen in the snipping here.

    Once you have the Recycle Bin box unchecked it disappears completely from the desktop as would any of the others seen there. The new shortcut is then simply renamed by a right click before dragging into a new toolbar intended folder you will always have in case you inadvertently unpin the shortcut you simply use the new toolbar option to drag a new into the same folder to reappear once again. This is why the guide posted earlier is a bit more practical in the long run.
