This may be of interest to some of you, read: those who dislike the Recycle Bin in Windows XP. Those good folks from the Bitbender have a guide up showing how to send the Recycle Bin packing.

 

The Recycle Bin, how about a different name for this necessary evil? This is a very easy tweak, if you follow along, we're going to have a little fun and learn to change the Recycle Bin's name by way of a registry 'hack'. If you are a beginner into the murky world of the registry, this is an ideal way of getting your feet wet....

 

Some of us like a clean desktop without icons, but miss having the Recycle Bin handy. This tweak will illustrate how to create the Recycle Bin on the Taskbar and rename it to whatever you desire. All this can be accomplished without the need to mess with the dreaded "Registry".
