Recycle bin icon not updating

As an attempt to have a clean desktop, many users avoid saving/placing program shortcuts and files on the desktop.

Instead, they pin frequently used programs to the taskbar.

– look to the left pane near the top and click Change Desktop Icons.

recycle bin icon not updating-8

The hotfix (KB932406) for resolving the desktop not refreshing properly, can be downloaded from Microsoft web site for both Windows Vista x32 based systems and x64 based systems. but it says "windows cannot find and blah blah" so pls shed some light on this.

it wud be really great cos i need to do a lot of netsend via my home network and i dont want to install just another program to do this.

To remove Recycle Bin from the taskbar, perform a right-click on Recycle Bin icon and then click Unpin this program from the taskbar option.

Tip: After adding Recycle Bin to the taskbar, you can open the Recycle Bin with a keyboard shortcut.

I downloaded hotfix (KB932406 and installed it and rebooted, but the Recycle Bin icon still does not update itself without a manual refresh. wpcoe what happened to you is that you have a shortcut to recycle bin and not the recycle bin itself on your desktop (i just tried it to see if thats it and the shortcut doesn't update).

The way to check is the bottom left corner of the icon has an arrow on it (means shortcut).

I installed the patch about three weeks ago and have not experienced any problems with the desktop not refreshing itself.

Although I still have the occasional behavior with Vista rearranging icons on the desktop, which can be be fixed by restoring the desktop icon position layout. well my problem is i still cant run i have used command prompt in administrator mode too. it says that 'msg' is not recognized as an internal or external command, blah blah blah i tried it in run as well.

For example, if your pinned Recycle Bin immediately after the Task view button, you can use Windows logo key 1 to open Recycle Bin.
