I recently installed an instance of Windows Server 2012 although I suspect that this also applies to other versions of Windows Server.
In the case of Windows Server 2012, the OS has the start screen with a bunch of icons (
This PC, etc.) - however,
Recycle Bin is not one of these icons. Instead,
Recycle Bin retains it's lonely spot on the desktop.
Whether placed on the start menu OR start screen OR the desktop, the aforementioned icons have one thing in common: they cannot be deleted.
Why is it that
Recycle Bin sits by itself on the desktop while the rest of these don't?
