If you don’t like keeping the Recycle Bin on your desktop, but you still want to have easy access to your deleted files, you can add the Recycle Bin to your Start Menu. It’s there when you need it without having to have the trash can icon taking up space on your eye catching wallpaper.

1. Open Notepad.

2. Copy and paste the following into the new text document:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{E44E5D18-0652-4508-A4E2-8A090067BCB0}]
