Trashcan is another widget, added in the same way :-)

You should bookmark http://userbase.kde.org, as well, for help on settling in 
to things that have changed.  In particular, I'd suggest that you have a good 
read of http://userbase.kde.org/Tutorials for overview and 
http://userbase.kde.org/Tutorials/File_Management for getting the best out of 

There's very little now that you could do in KDE3 but can't in KDE4, but often 
it's done differently, so ask  if you need help.
