Rename that recycle bin

Rename Recycle Bin

Open up your favorite plain text editor (notepad, for example) and copy the

following text into a new file:

 

 REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder]
"Attributes"=hex:50,01,00,20

"CallForAttributes"=dword:00000000

 

Now save this text file as a .reg file, such as "Rename Recycle Bin.reg" and

put it wherever you like. Double click on the file, and when it asks you if

you want to import it into the registry, choose Yes. You'll notice a new

option in the right-click menu to Rename the Recycle Bin. You can also

rename it by highlighing the Bin and hitting F2, or by highlighting it and

clicking on the file name (just like renaming any other file.


If you want to turn off this new feature, make another .reg file with the

same content as above, but change the first number in the "Attributes"=hex:

line from 50 to 40 and import that file into the registry.
