information   Information
The Recycle Bin provides a safety net when deleting files or folders. When you delete any of these items from your hard disk, Windows places it in the Recycle Bin and the Recycle Bin icon changes from empty to full.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Recycle Bin as a separate item on the navigation pane of File Explorer in Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows RT 8.1.


This will only add or remove the Recycle Bin as a separate item when Show all folders is unchecked. The Recycle Bin will still always show when Show all folders is checked.
