    What is the file location of the recycle bin folder in file explor?

    by m wu ·

    Where is the recycle bin’s folder location on Windows 10? I don’t need to know how to make the desktop shortcut for recycle bin. I just want to know if you go into file explorer, where do you go to find the files and folders in the recycle bin? Where is it in the C drive? For example, chrome.exe is usually located at C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application. What is the such location for the recycle bin folder?

      First, the Recycle Bin is located in a hidden directory named \$Recycle.Bin\%SID%, where %SID% is the SID of the user that performed the deletion.

      Most folk are fine with clicking on the desktop recycle bin or maybe you want a new shortcut to “Recycle Bin (Windows 10 )if you use the following path as the the “target” of a new shortcut:

      [b]%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe shell:RecycleBinFolder[/b]

      If I open file explorer and click on C and then enable show hidden items I see $recycle.bin

      Delete something and see if it shows up in the folder.

      To bring up the Recycle Bin, Click View -> Navigation Pane -> Show All Folders. Immediately you will notice some visible alterations in the layout of the sidebar. You will see links to the Recycle Bin and Control Panel
