Try logging off or rebooting if your trash appears to have something in it. (looks like paper in the trash bin)

Sometimes windows does this, nothing wrong with your PC, it's just plain microsoft!

We're all victims of popularity!

How do I remove deleted emails from the deleted box in windows 8.1?


Usually you 'right click on the 'deleted emails' heading. On the list that opens it includes 'Empty deleted Items folder' or similar wording.
You can just click on that to Delete. But you may want to keep some of the emails; on the list of deleted emails you can highlight the ones you want to get rid of, and leave those you want to keep.
They will not finally go until you empty your Recycle Bin

Unable to save my word documents when I click on save


If it was truely a shortcut and was deleted, the data is still in the folder on the hardrive (c:) and can be accessed with the file manager or exploring the c: (root) drive. once you find it , right click on it , select "make shortcut, then drag the shortcut to your desktop.
If it was a folder (not a shortcut) on your desktop that was deleted, you should be able to find the folder in your Recycle Bin and select it and click on RESTORE and that should put it back where it was .
If it was a folder and deleted and the recycle bin was emptied, it is lost unless you pay someone HIGH dollar to retrieve data from your harddrive that was deleted.
Hope this fixes ya up , post again if you need further assistance.
Regards..

I deleted the recycle icon by accident i would like to get it back please?


Assuming you didn’t turn off all your desktop icons (right-click your desktop, choose View from the menu, and choose Show Desktop Icons if it doesn’t have a check next to it, which will turn them back on), it’s easy to get back, so stop your sweating and follow these simple steps.
  1. Right-click on your desktop and choose Personalize

  2. Click on the Change Desktop Icons link in the upper left hand corner
    delrb2.jpg
  3. In the Desktop Icons Settings window, check the Recycle Bin box and click OK

WORKAROUND in case the above does not work loadTOCNode(1, 'workaround'); If you cannot restore the Recycle Bin by using the resolutions that are listed in this article, work around this issue by creating a shortcut to the Recycle Bin: 1. Click Start, and then click My Computer. 2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 3. Click the View tab, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 4. Click Yes when the warning message appears, and then click OK to close the Folder Options dialog box. 5. Click Folders on the toolbar.

Note If Folders is not visible on the toolbar, point to Toolbars on the View menu, and then click Standard Buttons. 6. In the left pane, under Folders, locate the Recycle Bin folder, and then drag the Recycle Bin folder to the desktop. 7. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 8. Click the View tab, and then click to select the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. Click OK.Note This procedure does not re-create the original icon. However, this procedure restores most of the features of the Recycle Bin, including the following: • Delete a file by dragging it to the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop. • Retrieve a file that you deleted by double-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, right-clicking the file that you want to retrieve, and then clicking Restore. • Empty the Recycle Bin by right-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, and then clicking Empty Recycle Bin. When you use these step to work around the problem, you cannot right-click the Recycle Bin shortcut to access the Recycle Bin Properties. To set properties for the Recycle Bin, follow these steps: 1. Double-click the Recycle Bin shortcut on the Desktop. The Recycle Bin folder opens. 2. In the upper left corner of the Recycle Bin folder, right-click the Recycle Bin icon, and then click Properties.
