    Quick question about searching "Recycle Bin"


    I remember that this used to work on older versions, but I'm now on Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.928) and searching "Recycle Bin" doesn't seem to show the Recycle Bin like it's supposed to. Just me or is this the same with other people?

    Was supposed to upload this image alongside it but not used to this system. I just used to search just like this. Also doesn't work with two other computers on 2004

    How were you "Uploading this Image" in previous versions of Windows?
    If you double click the Recycle Bin it will open a new window and show you the contents of the Recycle Bin. That's the fastest way to "Search" the Recycle Bin

    Did you remove the Recycle Bin from the desktop ?

    No, it's still on the desktop and still useable like always, just this way of getting to it that I usually do seems to be broken.

    I change the properties to automatically delete what goes in the Recycle Bin, from any of my drives, then I remove it from the desktop.

    Easiest way to search a recycle bin is shown in my screenshot post #2.

    To post a screenshot:

    What do you see if you rt click the Recycle bin? One option should be Open - same thing if you double click it.

    I typed 'r' and got Recycle Bin as a result immediately

    Umm.. that's an app...what does it actually open? In your case that may well open the Recycle Bin.. in my case it actually opens something related to a program I have installed. (Different icon too, corresponding with that).
