    How to Add or Remove Recycle Bin in Navigation Pane of File Explorer in Windows 10


    The Recycle Bin provides a safety net when deleting files or folders. When you delete any of these items from your hard disk, Windows places it in the Recycle Bin and the Recycle Bin icon changes from empty to full.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Recycle Bin in the navigation pane of File Explorer for only your account in Windows 10.


     CONTENTS:

    • Option One: To Add or Remove Recycle Bin in Navigation Pane using "Show all folders"
    • Option Two: To Add or Remove Recycle Bin in Navigation Pane using a REG file


    EXAMPLE: Add or Remove Recycle Bin in navigation pane of File Explorer

    Hellow, dude. Thank you for your wellcome message. I was wodering... I do not use the Windows folders ("Picutures", "Video", Documents", etc) to put my files. I use to creat a folder on root directory and put my files there. So... Do you think is there a way to make Windows explorer shows "local disk" instead of "This Computer"? I am not sure I was clear enough....

    That's normal when you have turned on "Show all folders".

    However, you should still be able to use the method in the tutorial below to remove it.
