WHAT'S THE RECYCLE BIN?
The Recycle Bin is a ‘safety net’ that acts as a depot for unwanted files and folders before you ultimately delete them to free up space on your PC’s hard drive. Using the Recycle Bin helps you stay organised and allows you to restore any files should you decide to keep them later on.Recycle Bin basics
• To put an unwanted file or folder in the Recycle Bin, simply click and drag it from its location onto the Desktop’s Recycle Bin icon and release the mouse button.
• Alternatively, you can click on the unwanted file or folder and press the DEL
key. Depending on your computer’s settings, you might be prompted to confirm this action.Handy hints
• Remember that files placed in the Recycle Bin from floppy disks and other external storage devices are always deleted straight away, not stored
