Windows 7: How to restore Recycle Bin?
In Windows 7, when you delete a file either by right-clicking on the file and then clicking delete option or simply pressing delete key on your keyboard, Windows automatically moves the file to the Recycle Bin. After sometime or after a few days, you may want to restore your deleted files to cross-check some information or for any other reason, you can open up the Recycle Bin and then restore the required file. It is so, because Recycle Bin works as a temporary storage place for all deleted items.
One thing that you need to consider is that the files deleted by simultaneously pressing Shift and Delete Key CANNOT be restored from the Recycle Bin as they are permanently deleted.
But, what if the Recycle Bin on your desktop in Windows 7 is missing? It becomes highly important to restore Recycle Bin, so that your deleted files are safe and can be restored if needed. So, how to restore the Recycle Bin on the desktop? Here’s how:
