Rename the Recycle Bin

Recommended Posts

Want to rename your Recycle Bin? Run RegEdit and use the Edit/ Find function to search for the string "Recycle Bin." The first or second occurrence you find should be in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT; you should see an entry that shows a default value of "Recycle Bin." Click the plus sign next to the key, then click on a subkey named ShellFolder. You'll see a binary value named Attributes. The first byte of Attributes is 40. Change it to 50, and you'll be able to rename the Recycle Bin immediately. Just right-click on the Recycle Bin icon and select Rename.
