How to empty recycle bin of all users in Windows

📅 2015-May-21 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ recycle bin, windows ⬩ 📚 Archive

This is a useful command to empty the recycle bins of all users in Windows:

C:> rd /s C:\$Recycle.Bin

I find it especially useful when I want to empty recycle bin without switching user.

Tried with: Windows 7 x64
