Recycle Bin Icon Gone

I tried personalization / desktop icon settings / recycle bin icon box is UN-checked however it is faded, and won't except being checked.
I tried system restore with no dates to fall back on.
I have no idea what happened.... it turned up gone, and I'm lost.

Thank you.

Hello s2ert,

If it's on the Recycle Bin that's grayed out, then you might see if using the tutorial below to enable it may help and allow you to check it afterwards.

Recycle Bin Icon - Allow or Prevent to Display

Hope this helps,

Recycle icon never changes Win 7 pro x64
The recycle bin icon on my desktop always shows empty even when I delete a file unlike previous Win OS which as you deleted the recycle bin icon changed to show it had files in it. Is there some setting or something to make it change when you delete a file. Thanks for any help.

Resize Recycle icon
I know it can be done. I have done it myself but now cannot remember (seniors moment ) and cannot find. It bugs me to look at a great big icon in the middle (almost ) of my nice clean start screen.

Remove box from recycle bin icon
Is there a way to remove the box around the recycle bin that shows up when the mouse hovers? Also is it possible to remove the text from it, so I only have the icon? Thanks.
