    I was playing around with an external monitor on my notebook and i seem to have lost my recycle bin lol. I'm not sure if i maybe 'left' it on the monitor or what.. Does anyone know how to show it on the desktop again? I'm running windows vista OS

    Thanks

    Just a guess here...but did you set your laptop back to using just a single monitor?

    I'm about 95% sure I did. But the other monitor is put away and getting it is not an option. Is there anywhere I can go to 'show it on the desktop'?

    A few things will refresh the desktop.

    Right click, Refresh. Rebooting. Logging off, back on again.

    Have you tried doing a system restore?
