empty recycle bin when it shows full

  Cessna 08:46 03 Jul 04

the recycle bin icon on my desktop shows that there is some "rubbish" inside it, but when i click on empty bin it says there is nothing there to delete. if i open it and explore the bin there is nothing there. no big deal of course but its frustrating having the full bin icon there when there is nothing inside it. any ideas on how to change it back to the empty bin icon? delete it and recreate it?

i would put somting in the bin, then empty it. just create a new folder, then delete it. then empty the bin. probably wont work, but worth a try.

Yes it does. Right click on Desktop and select New Folder. Drag it into the Recycle Bin and then empty it.
