    Me bins gone


    On one of my W10 upgrades, the Recycle Bin icon has vanished. I can put unwanted files into the bin using "delete" and the box with "delete file" opens up until I delete or cancel.
    I have looked everywhere.
    The pc is running W10pro 64 1607 14393.351
    It is up to date, KB3199986 and KB3197954 are on it.
    The icon went missing before the updated KB's.

    Hello tinmar,

    If you mean the Recycle Bin icon on your desktop, then the tutorial below can help show you how to add it back.

    Thanks Brink, I got it back using the settings method.
    If I opened "This PC" and then "up to desktop", the icon was there, but right clicking it would not "pin to start".

    Great news.

    You should be able to Pin to Start from the Recycle Bin icon on your desktop.

    In this instance, it didn't work, also, I have no idea why it disappeared in the first place. I have had a bin since 97 with Microsoft and I think there was something similar with the Atari ST and the 800XL before that.

    Are you able to "Pin to Start" other items without issue?

    Just to confirm, when you right click on the Recycle Bin desktop icon, do you have a "Pin to Start" option? When you click on "Pin to Start", it's not getting pinned to Start?

    Yes, I successfully pinned "homegroup" to the start. Also, right clicking on the Recycle Bin "pin to start" worked.
