In short, Recycle Bin is like your second chance on the Windows desktop to get back any data or file which you may have accidentally deleted. But what if your second chance to get back any data itself disappears from the desktop? Now your windows 10 recycle bin missing, leaving you clueless as to how to restore deleted files.

Method 1: Re-Enable the Recycle Bin
If you’ve accidentally disabled the Recycle Bin, it will stop appearing on the desktop. Before you try anything else, it’s good to double check if you haven’t disabled it by accident.

The Recycle Bin should be in there. Right-click on the icon and select Create Shortcut. You should now have a shortcut on your desktop.)
