    Recycling Bin controls are missing from Windows Explorer


    Some weeks ago, the ribbon menu controls "Empty Recycle Bin", "Restore" etc. were gone. The bin icon is on the desktop but the Properties are not accessible.

    Also noticed that after deleting a file in a folder, the image remains on the screen, showing a duplicate. The explorer must be refreshed to get an updated display. This behaviour always existed in the recycle bin, but it wasn't important and I figured that MS will get around to fixing it, but now it's worse.

    :)

    recycle bin

    Hi George,

    To prevent your files from being deleted from the Recycle Bin, we suggest increasing the maximum file size your Recycle Bin can keep by following the steps below:

    • Right click on the Recycle Bin icon.
    • Under the Settings for selected location, select Custom size.
    • Fill up the box for your allotted maximum file size for your Recycle Bin.
    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    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.
