When did the trash bin stop appearing on the desktop? I have just been getting rid of a few 32 bit apps seeing as I am running Mojave now. One of them was DragThing which according to the website isn't going to be updated to 64 bit and I didn't use it much anyway. I binned it and suddenly noticed the trash had vanished from the desktop. It's obviously still in the dock (which I use in pop up mode). I have used DragThing for years which got me thinking it was that app that was showing the trash bin all these years. I also seem to remember that the OS years ago always showed it automatically (I'm talking OS7/8). I think OnyX will do the same thing but don't use that much either. So when did it disappear? Just asking.

I think it disappeared in OS X 10.0

It seems you can create a symlink and kind of get one back.

I didn't try it.

Thanks again loughor for the link (and BDAqua) for your input. Oh god I am beginning to feel old. Actually I think I like the uncluttered look of no Trash bin better but it's good to have the choice.
