Accidentally deleted trash bin from dock!

Running 10.8.2 and I accidentally hit "remove from dock" on my trash bin icon, now I can't find "Trash" anywhere on computer!

Thanks in advance guys, I feel dumb.

I'm not sure how you did that because I can't seem to do it... Do you have dock mods on your mac or something?

What happens if you restart the computer?

"Accidentally" a funny way of describing something that is very difficult to do even on purpose. It's like saying I accidentally robbed a bank.

Wouldn't you have to edit a plist file, something most folks never do.

The default config is stored in a plist. The only way he could do this accidentally is if he's using some dock mod that includes the option to remove the trash. Of course he could also be trolling us, but I prefer to not assume such things.

trashbin

no he is not trolling. since a week, my Imac also seems to have the option to empty and remove from dock. i have no idea where to change that, because my blind "holding mouse a bit longer and knowing trash is empty, is no longer due!
my bin is also remotely removed and i am a bit tiered of plist re arranging hope somebody here finds an answer
thank you!
