Windows Survival Guide 1. 2. 3. 4. 52 Double-click the Recycle Bin icon, located on the desktop. (Single-click if "Recycle Bin" is un- derlined.) Make sure you will never ever need any of the files in the Recycle Bin. After emptying the Recycle Bin, retrieving files is nearly impossible. Open the File menu, and click Empty Recycle Bin. Windows displays a dialog box asking you to confirm this action. To proceed with the permanent deletion of the files in the Recycle Bin, click Yes. To cancel the operation, click No. Help Is on the Way If you get stuck in Windows, you don't have to flip through a book looking for help. Instead, open the Start menu and click Help. The Help window appears displaying links for the most common help topics. (Figure 5.6 shows the Windows Me Help window.) A link can be an icon, highlighted text, or a button that points to a corresponding document. Click the link for the desired help topic, and then follow the trail of links to find the information you need. If the trail of links leads to a dead end, click the Back button, as shown in Figure 5.6, to return to the previous screen, or click Home to return to the opening help screen.
