- 1To get there, we will move our mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen, which will cause the dock to pop out or appear. The trash can is represented by a trash icon, and it is labeled "Trash". In this example, the trash icon is on the far-right side of the dock. It should be there on most Mac computers.To begin, we need to access the waste-bin or trash icon, which is located at the dock.Advertisement
- 8This will restore the icon back to the desktop. We will be able to see that Mac OS X will have opened up the "Desktop" folder for us in a new Finder window to show us where it will have been placed. Also, if we look to the desktop to the right, we will see that the "QuickTime Player" icon is there.In this example, we will click "Put Back" one time.
