    I have Windows 10, question lost recycle bin


    I did follow some instructions to put a check mark in the square and I still can't get it to show up on my Desktop. Plus, I must have clicked the wrong option. When I first got it the other day it just had the recycle bin icon on the Desktop. Now, I can't find the recycle bin and all that is on the Desktop is a bunch of tiles.

    Please help, if I keep trying things I'm afraid I'm going to make things worse.

    If you see tiles then you are not on the desktop but are on the Start screen. Check settings to see if you have the Start screen turned on:

    Thanks for the reply, but it doesn't work for me. On my tablet which I have had for just a week. Will it hurt it to reset ?

    My Desktop computer I Updated to 10 and started having problem (which is probably my fault) is when I started having the Start Screen problem (on Tablet and Desktop) I would like to go back to my Desktop and get my Recycle bin back.

    Will they start coming out with more help on Windows 10 ?

    As KYHI stated, make sure tablet mode is not selected:
