I tried the suggestion on How-To-
Geek of "right click on desktop, click personalize, click change desk top icons,
(making sure recycle bin is clicked) click apply. But no icon comes up for Recycle Bin. It almost seems like it is hidden.
I think I might have deleted it when I was deleting some other files on the desktop. Any help appreciated.

When a file is deleted, it goes to the Recycle Bin (unless you used SHIFT+DEL or something). The Recycle Bin going to the Recycle Bin? Absurd.

Sometimes when you restore the recycle bin it want refresh right. You can try this:
Right-click on the Desktop and choose Personalize
In the Tasks pane, click Change desktop icons
Select the Recycle Bin (full) icon and click Change Icon
In the Change Icon dialog, choose the full Recycle Bin
Click OK to close the Change Icon dialog.
Now, select the Recycle Bin (empty) icon and click Change Icon
In the Change Icon dialog, choose the empty Recycle Bin icon
Click OK to close the Change Icon dialog.
Click Apply, OK
