    How to empty trash bin

    Hi. TF201 and ICS. Along with discarded emails, some text files and other garbage in my trash bin, I *can't* empty the trash bin. I can select everying in the trash bin, but that's it. There's no little trash bin icon to select to empty anything. Right now, it's just bloatware junk. How do I get rid of it? Thanks.

    When I go to my trash folder and click on a box besides some mail in the trash folder that I want permanently deleted the trash icon appears up top.

    That's the problem. I can select something like you do, but no trash icon appears up top. I've done two firmware updates, but never have I been able to get the trash icon to appear.

    Upscale, I'm not sure what program you're using...but I just checked a couple things.
    I have a tf201 too, I've noticed that when I use the stock browser--I have no trash icon appearing either.
    If I go to the stock email program--the trash can icon appears.
    Maybe try the email program that came pre-installed, see f you have any luck there.

    It's a Gmail thang.....

    I just log in on my PC and delete them from the trash folder.

    The stock Gmail app, for some reason, doesn't have this ability on my TF201.

    Right but you can always set up Gmail on the Asus email widget because it does have that feature! Just a thought...

    UPDATE: My inability to empty the trash bin is solved. After five weeks on back order, I finally received my docking keyboard for my Transformer Prime. Lo and Behold, with the keyboard attached, a garbage icon bin now appears up top that I can use to delete all the old trash.

    I'm not exactly sure why it's worked out this way, but who am I to complain? Oh, by the way, the keyboard is great. I recommend it highly to anyone thinking about getting one. Just know, that you may have to wait awhile for a back order to be filled.
