    Windows 8.1 Recycle Bin Settings Not Working Properly


    Hi,

    New here so thanks for any help in advance. I have Windows 8.1 and my settings for my recycle bin are "Don't move files to recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted." yet my recycle bin still fills up with the files I intend to delete. Thanks again!

    Hello Henry, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Do you have the Don't move files to the recycle bin... setting selected for all hard drives in the computer?
