If you don't use the Recycle Bin to store deleted files , you can get rid of its desktop icon all together.
  • As a precaution, if you have fear about registry, just copy the registry file "regedit.exe" from "C:\Windows\" folder and past anywhere of your place.
  • Run Regedit and go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/ Microsoft/ Windows/CurrentVersion/explorer/ Desktop/NameSpace

  • Then search for the string value "Recyclebin".
  • Click on the "Recycle Bin" string in the right hand pane.
  • Hit Del, click OK.
If you want to restore, just copy the registry file from your folder where you saved before and past to "C:\Windows\". then restart the computer.

How to Rename the Recycle Bin
  • To change the name of the Recycle Bin desktop icon, open Regedit and go to:
  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/CLSID/ {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
  • It is very difficult to find the code, right?

No problem, u just copy the code and click to select edit>find; from Menu bar and past to findand by right click on "Recycle Bin"and select modify option for change the name to whatever you want (don't type any quotes).

  • Eg:- find this code - 645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E
At last restart the computer..
