Preferred Solution: Getting back 'Empty Recycle Bin' Context Menu On Recycle Bin

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Getting back 'Empty Recycle Bin' Context Menu On Recycle Bin

1) You can go open recycle bin and then empty it. It just takes one more step to accomplish it.

2) If you have ccleaner you can restore or just clean with ccleaner itself. Honestly I've not used recycle bin for over a month.

After some unconsious playing around - I managed to loose most of the context menu for my Recycle bin. "empty recycle" is gone, "delete" is gone etc...

I tried to create a new user account and copy the settings from there - but - same things ...

So - please - if anyone could dump their registry keys involved in Recycle Bin's context menu...

A:Recycle bin (again) - need default context menu

Hello Lindstrom, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can do a system restore using a restore point dated before the context menu items were removed to hopefully restore them.

Hi. Although I uninstalled Eraser from my Vista SP1 box, Eraser's context menu items still appear in my Recycle bin's context menu:

Where in the registry do I delete these options?

Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Recycle bin context menu deletions

Try using the registry cleaner in CCleaner or Advanced Windows Care Personal (both free). There is a myriad of other apps that also have registry cleaning systems that should be able to detect a context menu pointed at a nonexistent exe.

Hello,

I have two questions:

1. I have created an executable that extracts archive files. I would like to create a context menu item to extract files with this exe. I do not want an 'open with' entry, what I would like would be a context menu item 'Extract' on archived file types (.zip, .tar, etc.) that opens the file with my executable. Is this possible and how should I proceed?

2. Is there a way (3rd party is OK, but I would prefer not to keep an extra application running all the time) to automatically delete items when they have been in the recycle bin for n days? I have seen some batch files that do this, but they seem to be based on date modified, not the date I put the files into the Bin. I also have googled for this and found some utilities that would do it, but most are bloated and add all sorts of features to the recycle bin I do not want to have. What would be a lightweight and efficient way to automatically do this?
Thank you very much for you time, any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Context menu items and Recycle bin deletion

For question #1 try this:

Open regedit and navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell

Right-click on “shell” and choose to create a new key, naming it Extract.

Double click on the Default value in the right hand pane and enter the path to your executable. Be sure to enclose the path in quotation marks - "C:\Program Files\...".

You may have to leave a space at the end of the path and type "%1":

"C:\Program Files\...\..." "%1"

I want something on the context menu that:
1. I can right click on empty folder space within the folder
2. Context menu says "delete folder to recycle bin"
3. The folder and all its contexts disappears and therefore so does the window I just used to delete it

You can do this with filemenu tools, but only for PERMANENT delete. I think this is too dangerous. Also sometimes I regret deleting something immediately. I just do it out of convenience. I have looked into the custom commands of filemenu tools and it does not facilitate this action. Also I tried contacting the dev, but he is mute.

Here is the post that solved my problem:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----
Found a way to accomplish this on Folders - recursively.

1) downloaded sdelete and dropped it in the system32

2) under "HKCR\folder\shell"

3) added a new key 'sdel'

4) under 'sdel'

5) add a new key 'command'

6) data for the default value in command is 'sdelete -s "%1"

(i suppose you could do the same through tools --> folder options --> file types --> advanced settings on the "(NONE)FOLDER" item)

---delete still asks to send to recycle bin, 'sdel' asks no questions and just deletes.

There are probably other delete tools that will perform this task for all objects without issue.

Fun to play with, but not incredibly useful.





I followed the instructions explained in that post. I named my key "Delete Permanently" instead of 'sdel'


Quote:




Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Delete Permanently]

Try right-clicking on the Recycle Bin and choose Properties, once the Properties dialog box is opened check to see if the box Do not move files to Recycle Bin is not checked and that Display delete confirmation dialog box is checked. I usually also have my maximum size for the Recycle Bin set at 5%, this way I don't use much disk space. You can also give this a look http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;173416.

Okay, on my desktop it shows there is trash in the bin. I open it, there is nothing there. But I click "Empty Recycle bin" and it says "Are you sure you want to delete these 23 items?" I say yes. It makes a sound like it is emptying, but when I close it, the desktop bin still shows trash in there. I open it again, still nothing there... click empty again and says the same thing. Does the same thing over and over.

I then deleted more documents to see if that would get it working, but it didn't It still shows trash on the desktop, but when opened... nothing is there. And the number 23 doesn't change... (which it should have ofcourse since I deleted more items)... and still won't empty.

Hi,

I'm running Win XP Pro SP3.

My recycle bin is full of folders, all named DE0000 (with the 0000 increasing consecutively to 0001, 0002 etc) and all showing as 0kb in size. When I try to empty the recycle bin I get the message "Cannot remove folder DE0000: Access is denied." I've used Unlocker to remove the lock on the folder and delete it, however the recycle bin is promptly refilled with a new series of folders where the consecutive numbering is increasing.

I've run full scans from Spybot and Adaware. Spybot found one spyware and removed it; Adaware then found nothing.

I tried running DDS but it froze my PC. I tried running GNER and it froze my PC just opening the program.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Welcome to TSF.

I will move this thread to the appropriate category.

No problem, we can help you fix that now.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different.

Hi,

I'm having a problem with a couple of users with roaming profiles when they log out of Windows 2000.

Basically, if they send anything to the recycle bin and log out, the recycle bin is emptied! This problem doesn't appear to occur when logging in as the domain admin on the affected PCs.

I've checked the recycler folder on the HDD, and there is a folder with the users SID which does disappear when the user logs out, but looks as though it is recreated when they log back in again.

I can't find anything in the security policy, plus AV is up to date with W2K SP3 installed (it was happening before it was put on) and it's beginning to bug me now...

TIA,

Neil.

Well, I have three files in the recycle bin but the images do not appear.

When I click empty recycle bin it appears saying:

" Are you sure you want to eliminate this 3 items? "

I click yes and then:

"It is not possible to eliminate Dc35: Acces denied

Make sure the disc is not full or protected against writing and that the file is not actually being used"


(this was my translation from portuguese to english)


How can I eliminate this 3 files? The strange this is that the icons do not appear in the recycle bin, but the icon of the recycle bin is with paper.

Thanks

I had 155gb on my hard drive and then added several .iso and video files, which reduced the hard drive to about 130gb..

Then I deleted all the iso and related video files and now there are only 144gb remaining on my hard drive, the equivalent to one movie.

How can I find and delete the ghost files that ought to have been removed via my recycle bin. I have restarted my computer and cleaned it with C Cleaner, to no avail.

Searching C drive by file size shown up nothing.

Had this issue once with XP and had to enter a special recycle bin folder (hidden) and delete it.
Can not find it in Windows 7. And believe me I tried, but am doing something wrong.


Please be very specific, as I require detailed instructions.

cordially,

Give it a run and see what it has to say.

Also, just for good measure, clean out your temp files and whatnot. I like CCleaner. Very fast and to the point.

A:Recycle bin never empty

Try this:
Delete any file (just to make sure there's something in the bin).
Then, with the Recycle Bin CLOSED (do not open it), right click the Recycle Bin desktop icon, select:
Empty Recycle Bin, and when the Confirm File Delete dialog box comes up, click OK.

Then reboot your system.

when i visit my recycle bin it is always empty ,even after i have just deleted items.
somtimes i want to restore an item but it's not there where are they going.
can anyone tell me please.

A:empty recycle bin

when you delete an item how are you doing it, do you right click then select delete?
or are you using a key shortcut.
the key shortcut deletes without putting the item in the bin. also your bin size may have something to do with it, as if the items are too large they will be deleted without being stored in the bin,although you generally see a pop up regarding that.
may be worth checking the size of the bin

I click on the empty recycle bin and get a little sound but nothing happens

RELEVANCY SCORE 85.6

I just deleted a bunch of files and tried to "take out the trash." When I click [empty] it makes the little crinkling sound but the desktop icon still shows it full. It continues to ask if I want to delete these same 22 items. When I open the recycle bin, nothing is displayed, even when I show all hidden files. When I delete new files, they don't go to the bin, they just disappear. I've also tried emptying it in safe mode but it doesn't work.

Any ideas? Is there a way I can reinstall just the recycle bin from my installation disk? I'd appreciate someone's input. Thanks.

Ya, that happens sometimes. Right click on the desktop > Personalize > Theme. Change the theme there (any other theme is good) and then change it back to the theme you have now. That will fix it.

Hi! I have amassed quite a number of files in my recycle bin, but when I try to empty it, I get this error message:

"Can't delete (insert file name). It is being used by another program." (and various other similar messages)

I get the same thing when I try to delete individual files. Some of them, it will delete, but most of them it will not.

What can I do? (I have Win XP, btw)
Thanks for your assistance,

Dear Forum,

I am just enquring as to whether or not too permantely delete the contents in my recycle bin and if it is affecting the performance of my machine.

I had the Norton team delete the back up of the previous version of their software and I went for assistance online and they decided to go along with my idea of removing all the items in the %temp% and temp folder.

I gather that the other files - I am not too sure if I may require them down the track.

I did not know that there was that much in the recycle bin and have not been advised on the best action.

I took a few snap shots of what type of items are in the current file at the moment.

A:How often should you empty your recycle bin

How often to empty that bin?
As often as you wish.

Will it impact performance?
In theory, yes. In reality, no.
In theory, the more files that you have on your computer, then the longer it takes for security software to complete a full scan.

Download CCleaner (avoid using the registry tool).
Let it clean up old files for you - as well as empty the recycle bin.

My recycle bin will not empty. I have 6 files in the recycle bin and they just won't delete.

I have tried restoring all but they just sit there.

Thanks.
 

A:Recycle bin will not empty

Try this:
Right-click the recycle bin.
Click 'Properties'.
Make sure 'Use one setting for all drives:' is selected.
Check the box 'Do not move files to the Recycle Bin'.
Click 'OK'.
That will completely disable the recycle bin.
Reboot, then re-enable the recycle bin.
Failing that - try "Moveonboot" http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Boot-Manager-Disk/MoveOnBoot.shtml

Hello, and thanks for your assistance!
I have tons of files in my recycle bin, but when I click to empty it, I get this message: "Cannot delete Dd2944: It is being used by another person or program. Close any programs that might be using the file and try again."

There is no file by that name. I can go through and delete some of the files individually (which would take gazillions of hours), but many of the files give me this same message when I click on delete. Can you give me any advice?
Thanks so much,
Angela
 

A:Can't empty recycle bin

Have you tried to empty the recycle bin in safe mode ?

To get into safe mode, keep tapping the F8 key early in the boot up process, (some keyboards may require you to turn on the F Lock first)

Alternatively you could try this handy little program, MOVE ON BOOT

You can select the files and have the utility delete them on the next boot up.
