Howto: Restore the Recycle Bin icon to a Windows Vista Desktop

One of my co-workers somehow deleted his Recycle Bin icon from his Windows Vista desktop this morning.  This is what I had him do to restore it back to the desktop:

  1. Right click on the Desktop and select Personalize
  2. On the left hand side select Change Desktop Icons
  3. Select the Recycle Bin icon and click OK

Your Recycle Bin icon should now be visible on the Vista desktop.
