    Recycle Bin Icon won't stay put on desktop.


    Hi everyone -

    I deal with complex issues, but this is ridiculous! W10 Pro...

    Have Auto Arrange Icons and Align Icons To Grid checked in View.
    I like my Recycle Bin in the lower left hand corner of the screen.

    However, it moves up four places on the left every time I log off or restart. Kind of annoying. Any ideas?

    Thanks! *Confused

    P.S. A simple "refresh" of the desktop does not change it's position.

    :)

    Missing desktop icons and recycle bin

    No problems on the current Windows 10 on three computers I have running dual screens. Desktop Icons only appear on the primary screen.

    All icons including the Recycle Bin not showing. The Recycle Bin could be the cause.

    There was a bug / glitch during the Insider Preview builds that would flash up a message saying the Recycle Bin was corrupted or missing.

    It seems that the Recycle Bin attempts to build a list of recycled files on all the drives on the computer. If the recycled files id is out of sync, that caused the bin to fail.

    Suggest:

    Copy some files; then delete them; then reboot and see if the Recycle Bin appears.
