Recycle Bin -- Move

    Is there any way to get the Recycle Bin off the desktop in Win 7? I'd like
    to move it to the taskbar (or whatever it's called) down below along with
    the rest of my program icons -- and have my desktop clean.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    You can pin the Recycle bin to the Explorer icon on the Taskbar. It's then
    available by right clicking on that icon. You can also pin it to the Start
    menu. To remove it from the desktop right click on the desktop and pick
    Personalize then Change desktop icons. Remove the checkmark beside Recycle
    bin.
