Recycle Bin in 2000 Pro
Posted 14 February 2002 - 01:17 PM
2 questions :
1)Any ideas how it could be restored?
2)Usually when an item is deleted it's stored in the bin until it's emptied. Now that that I don't see it, are items still stored or are they removed right away. If they are removed then I don't need to restore it, Otherwise

that comes up left-click once on Properties.
2. In the Display Properties windows click on
the Desktop tab. Then click on the Customize
Desktop button at the bottom of the window.
3. Put checkmarks in the boxes in front of all of
the Desktop Icons and then click Ok.
4. Try: Restore default also.
Note: This is for Windows XP, but should work on all

I only have : Effects, and under this, transition effects/smooth edges/show icons using...../show windows while dragging/hide keyboard.....
Those are the only options, the rest are screensaver/appearance/web/settings - no restore in sight
Can you please please help?

except a lost icon that windows plus installs as part of themes.
Windows does not contain any exe files or links or dll's
Got you all stumped!

Try using regedit and navigate to this key:
If the key exists, then the recycle bin is still there. Double click on Attributes in the right pane and enter the following value:
