Windows 10: Recycle icon on taskbar Solved

    Recycle icon on taskbar


    About a week ago an icon for Recycle Bin appeared on my taskbar near the right side. (see the attached image.) Not a pin but a larger icon, just like the one residing on my desktop. In fact, it is identical, having the same right click menu. A lengthy consult with MS didn't help. The only resolution suggested was to set up a new user account. But, as I like my setup and don't want to spend the time to recreate it in a new account, I've resolved to live with the icon. If anyone has an idea of how this happened or how to remove it, I'd like to know.

    Thanks, Brink! You have a good memory. Yes, Actual Tools updated Actual Windows Manager last week and slipped that one in on me. It was easy to fix, but it never occurred to me as I have only one monitor.
