Brink's solution for this challenge was perfect for Win 10, but can't work (yet) for 11. Here's hoping.

The idea is that it must do two things: alternate between empty and full icons, and offer a context-menu button to Empty the Recycle Bin.

(I had no trouble getting the icon onto the taskbar, and it opens the RecBin folder with one click, so that I can empty it with another click, but it offers no context menu, and it never changes its appearance, to let me know that it needs attention.)
