Recycle bin icon not updating

The Recycle Bin has been a fixture of the Windows desktop since the launch of Windows 95 more than 20 years ago.

For many users, the Recycle Bin’s presence on the desktop provides a quick way to view and restore deleted files, or to send files to their doom by emptying it.

Hello, My recycle bin full/empty icons won't refresh automatically. When I right click the Recycle Bin and click Empty Recycle Bin, the desktop freezes: the desktop become unclickable; if I click anywhere on the desktop, it just gives me a "ding" sound.

Everything else works fine, like icons on the dock is clickable, I can go to start and open an app etc.

Recently, several people reported the Recycle Bin corruption after the installation of Creators Update and subsequent updates.

The problem emerges when trying to empty the Recycle Bin completely or delete some of the files separately.

The same happens if I open the Recycle Bin and try to delete a separate file. The free scanner will identify main causes of your problem in its scan report.
