The Vista Recycle Bin

Brien Posey Brien Posey Profile: Brien Posey

I did something really stupid tonight. I was trying to get a little bit of work done while I was talking on the phone with my grandmother, and I accidentlly deleted the Recycle Bin on one of my workstations. Actually, I don’t feel too bad, because the option to delete the Recycle Bin is on the same menu as the option to empty the Recycle Bin (which is what I was trying to do). It’s easy to click on the wrong option. Fortunately, it is also easy to get the Recycle Bin back.

To do so, open the Control Panel, and click on the Appearance and Personalization link, followed by the Personalization link. The pane on the left contains a Change Desktop Icons option. Click on this option, and then select the Recycle Bin check box, and click OK. That’s all there is to bringing the Recycle Bin back!

    Hi Brien are you the Brien Posey that did an N-able N-Central review of 9.0 for Redmond magazine? Just happened to be looking for thingsrelated to this software as I will be using it more soon. Like you I thinks its awesome. I wanted to know how old you are. You have a pic that looks like you just graduated from high school but the description sounds like you held many positions  such as CIO. I hope this blog is not abandoned as the last post seems to be 2009
