    Yes.

    Remove Recycle Bin from desktop:

    Note: First create a shortcut to the Recycle Bin somewhere else. The root of C: is good.

    Start>Run> type "gpedit.msc"
    +-User Configuration
    -+-Administrative Templates
    --+-Desktop
    "Remove Recycle Bin icon from desktop"
    Set to Enabled.

    Reboot required for changes to take effect.

    1) Go to START and select Run
    2) Type GPEDIT.MSC
    3) Navagate to User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Click on Desktop
    4) On the right hand search " Remove Recycle Bin icon on the desktop " and double left click on it to ENABLE it.

    Or right click on desktop, uncheck show icons. Hey it hides all, but you asked!

    Removing and hiding aren't the same thing.
