    I was working on a friends computer with Vista installed. I an NOT a computer whiz but know enough to do some "not too technical" procedures.

    I think I messed up and somehow deleted the Recycle Bin!! I restarted in safe mode MANY times..... doing the F-8, F-9, F-11, etc.. as directed on a start up window. I followed each one and had no luck finding the missing Recycle Bin.

    I gave up but NOW I could NOT get it back to normal start. Again .... I followed all the F key procedures and I finally gave up. Luckily, this is now her backup computer because I had just transferred files and set up her new computer.

    How can I:
    1. Find the Recycle Bin?
    2. Get this thing off safe start and back to normal.

    PS. I have done the safe to normal start a dozen time before on my computers
    and I just can't understand this.

    Thanks, Indy Bob

    Hi. We need to know the make and model/Serial No of this Computer.

    You could try a System Restore in Safe Mode.
    A System Restore in Safe Mode is not reversible.



    To get the recycle bin back try this.

    Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    Click Appearance and Personalization, click Personalization, and then click Change desktop icons.
    Click to select the Recycle Bin check box, and then click OK.

    If this doesn't work for you run Microsoft FIXIT.
