that occupies most of  our Spaces then others do if we don't take a note on it..

You May ask how this happens,let me explain..Normally what as an normal users like us do was just

deleting a file using delete option,we may forget some times such little things which are saved in the

recycle bin will become a biggest part when it has more number of files,so its necessary for us to

keep an eye on recycle bin (if you are the user who don't use Shift + Del) While deleting things,else you can leave it to windows to do the task for us(like i do😊) So,in this tutorial let's see how to

create a task for windows to automatically delete the Recycle bin items in Windows 10.
