Hello readers!

Here’s a quick tip for those of you who’re already using Windows 10!

You may have noticed by now that the Recycle Bin is nowhere to be found… Had you looked it up online, you most likely would’ve found the following tedious solution:

Right-click on your DesktopĀ  > Personalise > Themes > Desktop icon settings > Check the “Recycle Bin” box.

This works, but it adds clutter on the desktop and doesn’t make the Recycle Bin visible on the Desktop in File Explorer.

Simplify!

Here’s the simplest way to access the Recycle Bin while keeping it out of sight:

Open File Explorer (Win + E) > Click the little arrow on the left of the address bar > Recycle Bin.

That’s it! And here’s how efficient users do it with their eyes closed:

Windows 10

Win+E > Tab x 2 > Up-Arrow x 2 > Enter

Windows 8/8.1

Win+E > Tab x 2 > Down-Arrow x 5 > Enter

Enjoy!

Yes, I really don’t have any icons on my desktop.
