    When tweaking an iso I must of changed recycle bin to auto delete and when I try and change settings its greyed out but I had same problem a few months ago and fixed it with CMD

    2nd is I also wanted to clean up what was on my computer but removed a shortcut to see what pcs were on network so now have to go through control panel or right click network icon then go into network centre, back a level then click on it so it is awkward.

    Please can I get some help on how to sort this, thanks.

    Execute under CMD Admin for each partition on your hard drive(s) and it will delete the Recycle Bin(s) and their contents. Recycle Bin(s) will be restored after restart.

    rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin
