Previously, I had written an article on pinning recycle bin to Windows 7 taskbar. Today, I’ll write on how to get rid of recycle bin from your Windows 7 desktop. Well, it’s really simple. Here’s how you do it:
Right click on the desktop and click Personalize.
On the left hand side, click on ‘Change desktop icons’.
Now in the Desktop Icon Settings, you can select or unselect the icons you want or don’t want. In order to remove the Recycle Bin from your desktop, just uncheck the icon.
Click OK. That’s it; you won’t find the Recycle bin again on your desktop. To get it back, simply repeat the above procedure and check the box that you unchecked before and save settings.
