Hi All,

I just powered on my W11 Home PC and the recycle bin is missing its icon :( The words "Recycle Bin" are still showing.

Does anyone know how to get it back, please?

Hello Brizzle, :-)

You could see if refreshing (F5) the desktop may restore it if it's just a glitch.

Hi Brink,

F5 didn't work but it gave me an idea and I just changed the scaling of the screen and hey presto! it's back.

Thank you :)
