Restore Recycle Bin Using Group Policy

If the system administrator used a Group Policy setting to hide the Recycle Bin or "All Icons" on the Desktop, you may have to contact the system administrator to restore the Recycle Bin icon. The system administrator can either use the Group Policy Object Editor (GPEDIT.msc) or manually remove the registry information (that was created through the Group Policy Object Editor) for the Recycle Bin to restore the Recycle Bin icon to the Desktop.

Note: The following procedures works only on Windows XP Professional. If your system is not Windows XP Professional, you can try the procedure in the "Workaround" section.

To use the Group Policy Object Editor to restore the Recycle Bin:

1. Click Start--> click Run--> type GPEDIT.MSC in the Open box--> and then click OK.

2. Under User Configuration--> click Administrative Templates--> and then double-click Desktop.

3. Double-click Remove Recycle Bin icon from the desktop.

4. Click the Setting tab--> click Not Configured--> and then click OK.
