Get-RecycleBin – Shows the contents of the Recycle Bin

As I posted earlier in the Clear-RecycleBin New PowerShell 5.0 cmdlet, available in Windows 10 article, in Windows 10 it is now possible to clear the Recycle Bin. Because the functionality to actually view which files is not implemented in any cmdlet at the moment I decided to upload a new function, Get-RecycleBin, to the TechNet Script Gallery.


Using the this function it is possible to view the contents of the recycle bin, including the filename, size and the current path in the Recycle Bin folder.


Executing this function will display the name, size and path of the files stored in the Recycle Bin for the current user
