Recycle bin not updating
We are all aware that on a Windows PC when a file is deleted, it is sent to the Recycle Bin which serves as a fail-safe.
It is like a second chance for you to recover a deleted file if you choose to change your mind about restoring it to your hard disk.
What happens when your Recycle Bin becomes corrupt and you can either restore deleted files or empty the Recycle Bin?
Whenever the Recycle Bin goes corrupt, you will see an error whenever you try to open it.
If the problem persists, proceed to the next solution.
It’s possible that your system might be infected which might be the reason Recycle Bin has an error.
To fix this problem caused by malware, I would recommend you to download and use the Microsoft Safety Scanner and Malwarebytes.
Both are supported by Microsoft, and i also think you should use them alongside.
The only condition is that icon file must be in format, meaning you can’t simply select an image file.There are many more icons in Windows 10 that really don’t look good on a modern operating system, but since the Recycle Bin icon is there right on the desktop and visible always, you may want to change the default icon of Recycle Bin in Windows 10 with a cool looking one.Luckily, like previous Windows versions, you don’t need to download a third-party software to replace the default Recycle Bin icon with a custom one.That said, there are many free tools and online services out there to convert image files into icon files.NOTE: There are many places on the web from where you can download cool icons for free. Step 4: Now that we have changed the Recycle Bin (full) icon, it’s time to change the Recycle Bin (empty) icon.
There is a provision under Desktop Icon Settings to change Recycle Bin, This PC, and Network icons.
