    Recycle Bin to taskbar?


    Tried pinning to start and right-clicking there but there is no "pin to taskbar" option. Anyone know how to put the recycle bin in my taskbar?

    Right click on Desktop, choose New>Shortcut,
    Enter explorer.exe shell:recyclebinfolder and click Next (include the space between exe and shell),
    name it what you wish and click Finish,
    right click on the new shortcut and choose Properties then Change Icon,
    enter imageres.dll where shell32 is and scroll over til you see recycle bin icon, choose then OK then Apply and OK,
    Drag that onto your taskbar and delete the shortcut if you wish.

    There are actually a few other ways to see the icon for the Recycle Bin added or Pinned to the task bar. The first guide found here at TF is the Quick Access Toolbar method. Quick Access Toolbar - Add Empty Recycle Bin in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    The second is from SevenForums where you create a new toolbar and see that added to the taskbar for either a single item like the Recycle Bin or multiple programs like IE, WExplorer, an icon for each app you can add into one folder that is pinned and turned intoa jump list. Recycle Bin - Pin to Taskbar - Windows 7 Help Forums[2]=Taskbar%20Start%20Menu

    I've using this other method since Vista to roll up any number of system functions, utilities, and wrapping games in others. Once you have a new folder for Trash created at the root of C: you simply right click on the RBin icon when set to appear on the desktop to create a new shortcut. The shortcut is then either dragged or moved into the new folder.

    When later right clicking on the taskbar itself you select the new toolbar option and browse to and select the Trash folder and apply it. At first you will see Trash appear in text where you right click again and uncheck the Title and Text items to then see only the waste basket icon remain in view. For other toolbars with several shortcuts you would simply name the folder created to the catagory unless mixing up the type of apps they go to.

    U forget about one more way - third-party software. I solved this problem without any manipulations by using Actual Multiple Monitors software. After installation it puts a fully functional Recycle Bin on my taskbar.
    Here is how it looks

    And..... ? I have RocketDock on here that comes with a large Recycle Bin icon but set that for auto hide on the secondary display. The new toolbar remains the quick solve without any need for any 3rd party ware. A bit less clutter.

    Can't change to Recycle Bin icon?


    I have followed the method described in Post #2. All went well with placing the shortcut into the taskbar except that it has the explorer icon. When clicking on the shortcut's properties to get the recycle icon, I was unable to substitute imageres.dll for shell32 as there was no shell32. Instead there was: C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:recyclebinfolder. Where did I go wrong?

    Change the icon before you pin it to the taskbar, just type into the dialog and press Enter:

    BTW, depending on what Build you're on, you may have to pin the shortcut to Start first, then right click on that to pin it to the taskbar.

    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???

recycle bin
Since the 10061 build, I have several times noticed the recycle bin showing full and when I looked there was nothing in it. When I went back to desktop the bin showed empty.
