One is empty and one is full. I cannot figure out how to get to the full recycle bin to delete it. I can see both recycle bins but can only access one. It has to be a sub folder of some kind. I am not very great with computer issues like this and can use all the help I can get. I tried to open the files and rt click to delete but it will not allow me to do either of these things.

    Could you please show screenshots? – David Sep 18 '18 at 15:05
  • Could be one bin for user A, another bin for user B. Normally, each user only has rights to their own bin unless they've got Admin rights. – K7AAY Sep 18 '18 at 17:42
  • @Christina McKaughan imgur.com and other sources are useful to share screenshots when you're new here and don't have enough points to directly upload. Post a screenshot through a site like Imgur, then add the URL linking to the screenshot, by clicking on edit above and at left, to add the update into your original post. – K7AAY Sep 18 '18 at 17:44
  • Do you have multiple drives? – fixer1234 Sep 23 '18 at 1:09

Try this to see if it helps.

  1. On windows 7, click win key,
  2. Search show or hide common icons on the desktop
  3. Uncheck the Recycle Bin, and apply to see if the two recycle bin will disappear.
  4. And re-check the Recycle Bin.

Or try to Restore Default to see if it helps.
