missing recycle bin icon on desktop

i have lost my recycle bin icon on my desktop. as a result i cannot recycle any item i delete! A dialogue box appears asking if i want to send the item being deleted to my recycle bin, and that is as far as it goes.result - missing recycleable files and much heartache?

thanks in advance


make a new shortcut to the recycle bin

TweakUI will allow you to select between displaying the icon on the desktop or not.

I assume recycle bin is still available in windows explorer ?
