The Recycle Bin is a feature in Windows that stores deleted files and folders until they are permanently deleted or restored. It is a safeguard against accidental deletion, allowing users to recover files they may have mistakenly deleted. When a file or folder is deleted, it is not permanently removed from the computer’s storage but is instead moved to the Recycle Bin. Users can access the Recycle Bin and restore deleted items if necessary or empty it to permanently delete files. The Recycle Bin can be customized in terms of size, location, and other settings to better suit users’ needs.
