How to hide the Recycle Bin in Windows 10, and remove its icon from your desktop

  • The Recycle Bin is one of the most recognizable programs on your Windows 10 computer.
  • It holds all your deleted files, and allows to restore them if you want to take them back.
  • However, some people find the Recycle Bin to be useless, and would rather it not be stuck on their desktop at all times.
  • Fortunately, Windows 10 lets you hide your Recycle Bin. When it's hidden, you can still delete files, and still open the Bin by searching for it using your computer's search bar, but it won't appear on your desktop anymore.
  • Of course, you might later change your mind and want to bring the Recycle Bin icon back.
  • To unhide the Recycle Bin, simply make your way back to the Desktop Icon Settings menu and check the box next to "Recycle Bin." Once you click "Apply," your Bin will reappear.

I studied 177 self-made millionaires for 5 years, and I learned that rich people choose their friends differently than the rest of us

  • In my extensive research for my book "Change Your Habits Change Your Life," I found that one of the hallmarks of wealthy, successful people was their ability to somehow break free of the human tendency to unconsciously forge relationships with others.
  • According to my Rich Habits research, in which I interviewed 177 self-made millionaires over five years, long before they became rich, the self-made rich made an intentional, conscious effort to only forge relationships with individuals they aspired to be: other rich and successful people.
  • Their associations all have similar habits, similar mental outlooks, a similar work ethic, and many other shared traits.
  • People who tend to build toxic relationships tend to have the opposite characteristics from those listed above, like bad habits, a negative outlook, a victim mindset, and a tendency to blame others for things that go wrong.
