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}

and change the name "Recycle Bin" to whatever you want (don't type any quotes).

What else would you call it? "Trash Heap" ? Then you might forget that this is the link to your recycle bin and have tons of old "deleted" data on your hard disk... haha.

Nice little trick, although I don't see much point in it, much like renaming the start button

Some people might rename it to Trash to make it match Linux, like when they rename Command Prompt to Terminal. Razz

Well technically any date you 'delete' is still on the hard drive, but unaccessible to the operating system. Even if you do a 'quick' format, like the one done by the Windows installer. An actual wipe where data can't be recovered takes a couple of hours (or days, depending on how deep you go).
