Whatever your current configuration, it’s simple enough to show or hide any of these icons on your system.
Right-click any empty space on your desktop and choose the “Personalize” option.
But not every user wants or needs the Recycle Bin on their desktop, perhaps because they’ve disabled its functionality in Windows, or because they prefer a clean desktop with minimal or no icons.
If you find yourself in this latter category of users, here’s how you can remove the Recycle Bin icon from the desktop in Windows 10.
Another new window, labeled section at the top of the window, you’ll see checkboxes for all of the familiar Windows system icons.
At the upper left of the window, click the “Change desktop icons” link.
Whichever version of Windows you’re using, the “Desktop Icon Settings” window that opens next looks the same.
I’ve recently upgraded to Windows 10 Creators Update and found my Recycle Bin not working properly.
When I right-click on it and select “Empty Recycle Bin,” the screen flickers and the File Explorer gets corrupt.
