How to Add or Remove "Recycle Bin" from Desktop Context Menu


information   Information
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 will show you how to add or remove Recycle Bin from the desktop right click context menu for all users on the computer in Windows 7 and Windows 8.

You will only be able to do this while logged in as an administrator.

Note   Note
Removable drives do not use or have a Recycyle Bin. Files deleted from removable drives are permanently deleted instead.
