In NU v16 I cannot find a way to stop automatic emptying of recycle bin

In N. Utilities v16 I cannot find a way to stop automatic emptying of the recycle bin. Advice on v. 15 from 2012 on this site does not match options in v. 16 (2017). I want to control when it is emptied and what is emptied (if I want to wait on some items). Where are the setting to accomplish this?  When I right click on the recycle bin, 'Empty Recycle Bin' is grayed out.

[OS Windows 10]

In Nu 16 click on the Privacy tab. Then click on Clear your Windows History. In there you will see the different items that you can choose to remove. Recycle bin is at bottom of list.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction - problem solved!

[The 'Privacy' tab seems to me to be an odd place to put those preferences!]

I guess they deem the files you put into the recycle bin as possibly containing personal information.
