Recycle Bin missing from Desktop

If you do not have the Recycle Bin on the desktop, and a search reveals nothing, then you can try the steps listed below:
>Click Start, and then click My Computer.
>On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
>Click the View tab, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box
>Click Yes when the warning message appears, and then click OK to close the Folder Options dialog box.
>Click Folders on the toolbar(Note If Folders is not visible on the toolbar, point to Toolbars on the View menu, and then click Standard Buttons)
>In the left pane, under Folders, locate the Recycle Bin folder, and then drag the Recycle Bin folder to the desktop.
>On the Tools menu, click Folder Options
>Click the View tab, and then click to select the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. Click OK.
Note This procedure does not re-create the original icon. However, this procedure restores most of the features of the Recycle Bin.
