1) right click on your recycle bin and choose properties
2) uncheck the box: Don't move files to the Recycle Bin, Remove Files immediately when deleted

The check box in the Recycle bin Properties dialogue box must be active, to deactivate it, do this: a. On the desktop, right-click Recycle Bin, and then click Properties. b.Under Recycle Bin Location (Global), uncheck or deactive the checkbox option "Do not move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted." Good luck!

Right click the Recycle Bin > Properties then unselect the option to delete files rather than moving to the Recycle Bin.

You cannot restore files if the original location of the file was on a removable drive that is not currently connected.

Hi @yoursong

Right click on recycle bin > properties.

If you have selected don't move files the select custom size and set a storage size upto 7 GB min. Apply and restart your pc.

Kindly refer the below picture.

This depends too on the file size, with larger files they tend to get deleted straight away without going in to the trash can, though your looking HQ movie file sizes though....

The file size I deleted was very small.

Oh ok, more likely due to property settings, that perhaps was automatically changed from a recent update or installation.

This depends too on the folder size, with longer documentations they incline to get removed conventional away without going in to the waste can, though you’re looking HQ show folder sizes though....

Are you in admin mode on your PC, as when not in Admin mode you may have restrictions, also are you deleting files from your PC or from say USB, because most if not all deleted files from USB will not go to recycle bin.

HI if you are speaking of deleting temporary files these do not go to your recycle bin. These are gone after hitting delete temporary files when you restart or shut down your computer. Clearing history works the same way. Cookies deleted also go away when you shut down or restart. Good Luck!
