The Recycle Bin is a folder on Microsoft Windows where the user can delete files, and can also delete viruses. This file was added in Windows since Windows 95, and the user can remove files by dragging and dropping unwanted files into the Recycle Bin folder, or by right clicking on a file and selecting Delete. However, when the user deletes a file, it is not permanently gone unless they delete it again by opening the Recycle Bin, right clicking on the file and pressing Delete.
