Problem sorted,had a look on the dell vista forums.Right click desktop,then personalize,change desktop icons,then tick recycle bin icon.Hey presto its back.Very simple but when you don't know you feel a bit of a plank.

I don't know if it's the same for Vista, but there are various recycle bin tools in tweakUI for XP.

Probably very similar, Floydy... I wouldn't imagine the underlying Recycle Bin architecture has been radically, if at all, changed from XP to Vista.

The more I read about Vista, the more I'm thinking it's a case of one step forwards and 2 steps back, but never having actually used a Vista system this is purely conjecture.

No, you have it summed up pretty well there... with the exception of the one step forwards bit... I think you're being a bit too generous :lol:

Well I would think almost anything seems better than ME.

Well, better late than never UB ;)

Vista is a leap ahead of Windows ME, without a doubt.

To be honest, perhaps I've been a bit harsh on Vista - in time I'm sure Vista will be a very good operating system, it just wasn't really ready for unleashing on the public, and there are a few things that do nothing except put people off e.g. the DRM integrated stuff, performance hit compared to XP, etc. However I do remember a similar backlash when XP first came out - incompatibility with existing software etc... and now most of us are hailing XP as being the best Windows version to date.

We're a race of habit-forming creatures, we don't like change. Vista is a big change in both looks and high-level functionality. Coupled with the fact that a lot of today's hardware struggles with it, and it's going to be a while before Vista is accepted. I'm sure it will be, given time.

All that doesn't mean I actually like Vista, at the moment - I'm going to leave it alone for a bit until I see some reports that it's got a bit better. Perhaps I'll end up waiting a while ;)

Yes you are right about how we all grumbled about XP when it first came out, and then again when SP2 was released, but all things considered, once you've tamed XP/SP2 it's possibly the best Microsoft OS ever. 

I can't comment about 2000 tho, but from what I read about it, it would seem to be pretty good and solid.

Truer words have never been said Floyd. XP had issues, but aside from dos and 2000, it is the most stable and well made windows OS to date.

You know, I never complained about XP. It has been a far better OS than 98 or ME from the start for me.
There was a learning curve, but I don't remember having any real issues. My limited exposure to Vista is a different story though.
