So, I was bored and thought about where I place my recycling bin on my desktop, I kinda found it strange that I put it on the other side of the screen from the rest of my shortcuts. I guess its defaulted like that, and its...just how things work.

Anyone else just keep like that because why the hell not? Or for some weird reason? Or is it elsewhere? Or do you not have one on your desktop?

It goes in the top left corner, if you move it you're wrong.

I don't have a single desktop icon.

I hide all icons and use a Rainmeter skin for that instead.

5 spaces right from the top left corner. Also, this seems pointless

Right now, it's in the top left, but in a few minutes I will be able to truthfully say this:

In the top right corner, but I can't see it, since I always hide all my icons.

#12 Posted by Chaser324 (6325 posts) -

Top left corner, and typically it's the only thing there.

What if I move it into the Recycle Bin?

#14 Posted by JamesJeux007 (468 posts) -

It's on my taskbar, to the right. Because I'm awesome like that.

#15 Posted by CaLe (3911 posts) -

Bottom right corner, because I'm a god damned civilized human being.

It's in my Dock along with my settings and 9 other apps that I use all the time. I'm a left side, always visible Dock user like Brad and other Whiskey staff past and present.

Bottom right corner of my desktop. Seperated from all the other icons (Web Browser, iTunes).

In the top left corner just below 'My Computer' (which is at the very top left).

#28 Posted by Hector (3356 posts) -

All the way to right on my dock.

#29 Edited by Ben_H (3311 posts) -

Somewhere on the left side of my screen. All my icons get messed up every time I switch out resolutions, which happens a lot. 
 
On my Mac my Trash is at the bottom of my dock, which is set to the left side and autohide because I'm civilized and actually value screen real estate. People who have small screened Macs that have their dock set to always showing and on the bottom are idiots. I mean sure it is fine on a 27" iMac, but on a 11" or 13" Pro or Air that's like a sixth of the screen wasted for no reason. If you must have it always showing at least put it to the left or right side, because vertical space is so much more useful than that extra bit of horizontal space.Edit: Also, unless you have a ton of shit in your dock, turn magnification off. It just makes it unnecessarily difficult to navigate it. This is why I can't use other people's Macs.

My desktop is a mess. It's somewhere lost in a vast wilderness of desktop icons.

#31 Posted by MikkaQ (10268 posts) -

Wow am I the only person that uses the desktop as it's intended function? Shit was made to have icons on it, yo. I always use that space for temporary work, or the myriad shortcuts I need to other folders on my computer for easy access to my art assets.

Anyway recycle bin's in the top left, just under "My Computer".

you know you can make that icon disappear, right? well that's what I did. I like my desktop clean so I can see all of my sweet Calvin and Hobbes wallpaper.

Why?

Why would I? I have a search bar to find specific files. And a taskbar to put programs I use frequently e.g. Steam. It's not like I edit videos and need to leave bits laying around, I'd rather a nice and clean workspace.

In my dock. Which is on the left. Hidden.

#40 Posted by yoshisaur (2648 posts) -

I remove it from my desktop, I can't stand icons there anymore. Nothing is 100% standard (like an iPhone) so eventually it just looks cluttered and messy. My recycle bin is cleaned every day at 9:00 A.M. through a start-up executable I wrote that does it automatically.

#41 Posted by WEB_War4 (111 posts) -

It used to be in the bottom right corner back in XP. I keep it wherever the default is, top left right now.

I like to keep my desktop clean, so I just put everything at the bottom left on the taskbar. And oh, I guess this.

The default spot (upper left). I don't even use the desktop so I never arrange anything on it and is usually pretty barren unless I just save something to it real quick.

Outside then out to the curb every wednesday.

Top left. 
  
Also.  A bag hanging in the kitchen that gets emptied into the bins on the side of the house - daily.

Top left most directly under My Computer like a proper human being. When I rule the world I will make it a crime punishable by death for anyone that has it any other place.

#48 Posted by Nev (540 posts) -

Bottom right corner. It's the only icon on my desktop.

#49 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3050 posts) -

It's always been on my Dell Dock. I don't use it much so I haven't moved it.
