    Default Mistakenly Deleted Recycle Bin in Windows 8

    Hello, eveyone,

    You know that several weeks ago, I upgraded the operating system of my laptop to windows 8. Then recently I came across a problem that I could not find solutions in such system. Yesterday, I mistakenly deleted the recycle bin. I have searched the ways to retrieve it back in Google, but all the methods turned out to be useless. And I also have tried to recover it in the Registry, but it was also a failure.


    Any computer talent to show me some instructions to help me out?

    Many thanks!

    So I am just curious why you would try to answer a question when you do not know the answer. Come on dude, don't you have betters stuff to do. RT click/personalize/desktop icons. NEVER install something when you dont have to. Get a clue dude

    I am guessing that HongMay, with almost 1500 posts, has probably tried the obvious solution and failed? Best wait for feedback.
    fwiw. azguy. The poster, lucifinil, suggested, a possible solution.. Whilst the suggestion may be flawed, it was offered in good faith.
    As the answer you prescribe, has already been suggested twice, possibly your own contribution could also be regarded as a waste of space?

    Ok! I was having the exact same issue up until five seconds ago.

    I tried all of the normal solutions, including the one offered here...no go. :| What I ended up doing was pretty stupid and rather easy; but it worked.

    So, despite being faced with the prospect of looking like an idiot, I'll say what I did.

    >Right click on Desktop
    >View
    >Desktop Icons

    Make sure you have the Recycle Bin checked on Desktop properties though. Hope this works!
