Recycle Bin Panel
The Recycle Bin Panel is not included in Desktop Sidebar installation package. It has to be downloaded and installed separately from the "More Panels..." link in Add New Panel dialog. You can also access that site here.
The Recycle Bin Panel displays the total number of items (Files and Folders) in the recycle bin and the total size.
The following properties of the Recycle Bin can be assigned through the Panel Properties Option:
- You can use one setting for all drives on your computer, or you can Configure drives independently
- You can also choose to disable the recycle bin and remove files from the computer entirely when you delete them.
- You can set the maximum size of the recycle bin
- You can toggle the delete confirmation dialog
- If you have chosen to configure drives independently, then you can set the above properties differently for each drive under the tab corresponding to that drive
Left clicking the Recycle Bin panel will open the Recycle Bin folder.
You can also choose to Empty or Open the Recycle Bin folder in the Right Click menu.
