I have Windows 10.
Tried CONTROL PANEL >> "personalize",  But but didn't find icons.

I think I should try "personalize" >> then select "Explorer File Options" and then restore defaults.
But will do that after I get other work done.

Right click on the Desktop, Select Personalize, in there select Themes. In Themes, go to Desktop Icons Settings. If Recycle bin is not checked, then check it and see if that works.  It works for me.
