    Hi and welcome to the forum....:)

    To return the Recycle bin icon to the desktop, right-click on the desktop, choose 'Personalise' down at the bottom and then look on the left-hand side of the revealed box. Under Tasks you should see 'change desktop icons'. Click that and then tick the check box for the recycle bin which should then reappear...

    And run this little reg file, if you like, which will remove that dumb drop down menu item in the recycle bin "delete"
