Hello Dichro,

Double check using the tutorial below to see if the Recycle Bin is checked to be added to your desktop.
Desktop Icons - Add or Remove
If it is, then double check using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to make sure that your "C:\Users\(user-name)\Desktop" folder is still located there.
User Folders - Restore Default Location
Hope this helps for now,
Shawn
