View Full Version : [Solved] Win 98 - trash bin - wrong icon

I know I have fixed this before but that was many years ago and I must not be typing the right terms in google.

My recycle bin says it is empty but shows the "not empty icon"

Under display properties there is an option to display the basic operating icons in different formats.

Select the empty recycle bin and apply the properties and it should give you the correct empty desktop icon.

No need to delete the recycler (and I don't think you can anyway because W98 sees that as an operating system directory / folder).
