    Cool app MiniBin


    I found this last night and saved the page for today. There is a little free program called MiniBin, you can install it and it puts a trash can in your tray. It will show empty when there is nothing in the recycle bin and shows full when you have something in the recycle bin. You can set it to show 25%, 50% etc or just have it show totally full when something is in there.

    If there is anyone like me that has stuff all over their screens all the time and doesn't like to minimize stuff to see the recycle bin, this is great. I gave it a test this morning and it works great.

    Download MiniBin - MajorGeeks

    I will be keeping this little handy program.

    That program was last updated 2014 and doesn't specifically mention Windows 10 support.

    It works fine in Windows 10. I tested it with about everything I could toss at it.

    I right-clicked mine and Pinned it to the Start menu, moved its Tile to a better location in the list. No choice for pinning to the Taskbar.

    You could also simply pin the Recycle Bin to the Taskbar...

    Yes you could, but then you couldn't double click to empty it

    I already have the Recycle Bin (on the Desktop) relegated to the Desktop Toolbar (which serves the same purpose as having it showing in the Tray) occupying the taskbar.

    Then it is double-click versus rt-click context menu to empty it. Po-tay-to, po-tah-to.
