Windows 7 Home Premium on laptop and I've been deleting things from favourites to clear some stuff and it's been working fine. Last few days though only noticed as much today, there's nothing in the recycle bin and it's not asking me if I want to delete the file before sending it to the bin. Next to the delete and rename in the right clicked list there is the blue and yellow shield (windows 7?) but not on the rest of the list and I haven't noticed them before.
I have checked the properties for the recycle bin it's still as it was set to display delete confirm dialogue box and the "remove files permanently" is unchecked. I can't figure out why this has gone like it has as I've deleted quite a few bits and they've always been in the recycle bin until last few days.
I am not at ease doing techy stuff on the computer so any really dummy instructions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
