Where Is the Recycling Bin in Windows XP?

In Windows XP, the Recycle Bin is found on the desktop. It has a bin-shaped icon and can be hidden and unhidden. When the user deletes a file, the icon changes from empty to full to reflect the deletion.

When a user selects a file or folder and clicks "delete," or selects delete from the drop-down menu, the file or folder is not permanently deleted, but is placed into the Recycle Bin instead. This came about as a result of users deleting a file or folder only to find out later that they had made a mistake. The Recycle Bin restores files that are deleted from hard drives only, and not from removable media. Many Windows programs use the Recycle Bin when a user deletes a file, but certain programs permanently delete the file.
