View Full Version : Recycle Bin Icon gone missing

14-08-2000, 10:43 PM
I have inherited a system running Office 2000 in Windows 95 with a large disk partitioned into C-H drives.
I have filled up the Recycle Bin in the 'C drive with over 1700 files I wish to delete, but the Recycle Bin icon is nowhere to be found on the desktop or Control panel etc. I have tried selecting items in the Recycle Bin using Explorer, and although the system goes through the correct motions, nothing is actually deleted.
I want to 'Empty the Recycle Bin' but as I cannot find the icon, it appears it does not work.
Any ideas please?

Welcome to PressF1, rsabell.

Sadly it's too late for that questioner. The date is 2000 - 5 years ago.
You've obviously been super-diligent with your Search button finger.
Thanks for trying to help.
