Windows 7: Cannot restore recycle bin to desktop.

Cannot restore recycle bin to desktop.

Greetings every1.

I was browsing around and found a tutorial to add a fully functional recycle bin to the taskbar. I got it to work perfectly so i deleted the one off my desktop. A few days ago i accidentally deleted it from the taskbar and got stuck. I figured i would just restore it to the desktop again. The problem started there for i could not figure out how to restore it. I did some googling and tried to restore it from the desktop icons setings window, however the recycle bin icon was unclickable. Is there any other way for me to restore my recycle bin to the desktop?

I searched but didn't see anyone else asking this question, so here I go. I like a clean desktop, but like being able to drag and drop desktop files in the trash when I'm done with them. In Vista I made my Recycle Bin icon invisible by using a shortcut to the Recycle Bin and then using a...
