How to empty ALL recycle bins?

I have noticed that emptying a recycle bin, empties only the current user's bin and not the other user's.
Is it possible to empty all of them with one command ?

what you can do is set the size of the bin to very small and then as The Recycle Bin gets full, it starts permanently deleting its oldest files to make space for new ones
more inof on the bin

Why do you want to delete other's recycle bin.

As I previously said , each user has its own rights once he logs on to his account ..

The reason is that in my PC there (for historical reasons) is a small C partition where the OS is installed. I like to keep it with as much free space as possible.
There is no real rights/privacy or similar issue. The other users are my small kids who will never empty their bins :-)
Since this OS (with all its users ) runs on the same physical disk, I think it is a needed fuction.

OK.. I am not sure if there is  a way for deleting using a single command.

However since they are kids they can put in guest  account or limited account . I guess there could be a batch file to accomplish this process.


Sorry , I cannot be much help

Although I didn't try it, I think guests also have recycle bins.
In any case , it is much more convenient when everyone is an administrator, because sometimes I don't want to switch users each time I do some administrative task.
