    Add Empty Recycle Bin to Quick Access Toolbar in Windows 10

    I'm with you there Bill, I always make use of the QAB but I was just surprised how many family members and friends didn't know how to empty their Recycle Bin after buying new PCs with W8 installed as there was no option 'where it used to be' (verbatim). They weren't even aware of the QAB so I spent quite some time explaining how to add the shortcut to several people, then just doing it myself as it was quicker. Hence the tutorial as it was one of the most asked questions I got for W8.
