Can I empty the recycle bin from the command prompt? I'd like to do
it as part of a batch file.

How embarrassing! I asked this question in June, and I GOT ANSWERS in
this very newsgroup. My apologies! Obviously I need to get my own
stray files in order before I ask any "new" questions, or AT LEAST
remember to google every single one first.

Some good should come out of this, at least: everybody else, don't
look foolish like I did! Google for your question before you post it
here!

the recycle bin folder is C:\RECYCLER you can delete the files in it by
using del command.

Thanks for the suggestion, but actually that won't work for me
because I have a third-party add-on that puts files into the Recycle
Bin after a command-prompt DEL command. (I say "won't work", but the
truth is I'm afraid of what might happen if I try.)

However, my question was answered back in June, and I should have
realized that before I posted. I've reposted the answers in this
thread for anyone who might be interested.
