I accidentally deleted the Recycle Bin on the Desktop. How do I get it back?

From what I know, it's not possible to delete the Recycling Bin. Are you sure it wasn't a shortcut?
Try this.
"If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." - Bertrand Russell

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I went to the Change desktop icons screen and saw that Recycle Bin was unchecked. I checked it and it reappeared on the Desktop.

Thanks to all!
