Trash icon is located on the Dock bar in Mac,but it seems to be more noticeable if it is on the desktop. So,how to add a trash icon to the desktop ?

Launch the Terminal and type the following code:

ln -s ~/.Trash ~/Desktop/Trash

After running the command, a folder named ‘Trash’ will appear on your desktop,it points to the trash folder just as what the icon on the Dock does. You can replace the icon of this trash folder with a real trash icon as the picture on the right shows.
