Getting to the recycle bin.

If you have a few windows open while working and you want to bin one of your files did you know

that if the recycle bin is covered by you open folders makes it really hard to drag and drop. I used to

minimize all windows and then drag & drop. XP allows you to drag items to the bin when loads of

windows are open and covering the recycle bin. Just pick up the item and making sure you go over

a blank part of the task bar all open windows will then minimize works also if the window you are

working on is full screen.
