82. Accidentally Deleted Recycle Bin Icon
One has to admit that we have all deleted the
recycle bin in Windows Vista at one time or another.
usually we have been in such a hurry to empty the
recycle bin that, instead of Right clicking and
selecting the 'empty recycle bin' option, we have,
inadvertently, selected the Delete option instead.
After the deed has been done there is a few
seconds of shock horror followed, usually, by a few
unprintable expletives and then panic instills as we
wonder how on Earth we are going to replace the
deleted recycle bin icon.
Panic won't solve the problem, but these simple

desktop and, from the drop down

more on your desktop.
