I accidently deleted Recycle bin.  How can I get it back?

 

I was working a little too fast and mistakenly deleted it, instead of opening and choosing files to delete from it.  Now Recycle bin is gone.  What can I do?  How?

 

 

Windows Vista Home Premium fully updated, toshiba laptop P305.

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

May work. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810869

Thanks NickAu1.

That is the set of steps I followed, and that did work.

 

 

I also tried a search on internet and found the same as you said, here:

All looks well now.  I should have tried the internet search before posting my help request.
