To the best of my knowledge there is no "restore" for the recycle bin. You have to double-click on it and when it opens select the files/folders you wish to recover.

On the bottom line of BBCode (above) you clicked the last item (Align Right).

Weird now its back to normal.

You started another conversation ..... (this restored it to default)

 

Re your Recycle bin items:

I would try a 3rd party program, like Recuva or similar .....

This topic may have a problem due to your writing and the way it was explained.

The main problem is you calling something a Bin, and it was mistaken, by your responders for the Recycle Bin.(or was this what you meant ?)

You also relate to Vista and Windows 7 which is not the same as Windows 8.1 ......

Ok I turned on my Dell inspiron 3000 lap top and than was going to restore some folders from the bin that I left their last nite.     Thinking so far so good; so I right clicked on the Bin and theirs the pop up menu but theirs no  

" Restore " their as usual so how do I get the restore back onto the right click menu ? ?

OK. I turned on my Dell Inspiron 3000 lap top and than (then I ?) was going to restore some folders from the "bin" (What area do you mean ?) that I left their (there ?) last nite (night ?).

 

We did not understand your meaning of "Bin" .. Please explain carefully what you mean, and spell it correctly (theirs or there is can be confusing .)

The recycle bin does appear on the desktop by default. It's location is up to the user. But more important, I still don't understand your original post.

 

I'm on a W8.1 system as I'm typing this. If I right click on the recycle bin a number of options appear in the context menu, none of which is "restore". Nor do I recall having seen that option in the context menu for any system or any Windows version at desktop level. The restore option would be available for the deleted items within the recycle bin (once you view the files in the bin). Is that what you mean?

Wow am I the only one here that had a recycle bin from the day I got my vista; win 7 and now win 8.1 computers in the far upper left corner from the day I turned this lap top on ? ?

 

I did nothing to get it their and guessing I am the only one that has had a right click ; 7 items including restore for everything in the bin; ops being bad ouchy; mean recycle bin on that menu.

 

Guess the pc store I got  my laptops from had a bunch of free upgrades done; on the house before selling them to customers ?

Recover files from the Recycle Bin - Windows Help

This is about the only full answer to your question / problem (based on a Windows 7 system).

The Recycle Bin is normally used to remove unwanted programs or documents from your desktop. You Right click on them and select Delete, and the program is sent to the Recycle bin.

From there you can select to Uninstall or Reinstall the item that you have sent to the Recycle Bin (as we normally do).

 

I think you just explained your problem in an odd way.

P.S. You can move the Bin Icon to any area on the desktop (mine is Right hand - bottom)
