Retreive Icons
In a flurry of adding/removing, somehow I deleted the shortcuts and Icons for
the recycle bin and the shortcut to my Defragmenter. I know there are ways
to get there, but I would really like to retreive those Icons/shortcuts. Any
thoughts, other than it was an inattentive thing to do?

Re: Retreive Icons
Hi, Rex.

For the Recycle Bin, right-click on any empty space on your Desktop, then
Personalize | Change desktop icons.

For the built-in Defragmenter, there probably are other (maybe better) ways;
search Help and Support for "defragment" for help. But one way is to
right-click on your Desktop, then New | Shortcut, and create a shortcut to
C:\Windows\System32\dfrgui.exe; name it whatever you like, but "Defrag"
comes quickly to mind.

If you are using a third-party defragger, just change the filename.
