    I'm playing around with active desktop, a la madmatt and Md, and i came across a strange occurence:

    When i use tweakui to get rid of the recycle bin (there is a option to diplay it of not) my desktop get's rather odd. my background will not dispay. i will only see the colour that i have assigned to hide under my background. i also don't get to see anything that i have put on my active desktop. in this case menu's linking to programs, etc. does anyone know why this might be happening, and if so how to prevent it?

    i know that i can have the recycle bin not show by going into the registy and changing values there, or by right clicking on my dtop and unchecking show dtop icons, but i would like to nip this in the bud using my origional plan of attack.

    thanks in advance,

    Piett

    yeah, that's not as much helping me as it is not helping me. i was asking if anyone knew what to do, not for opinions of Tewakui.

    no offense intended

    Are there other icons you are trying to display, other than Recycle Bin? If not, there is an option to turn off all desktop icons:

    Right click desktop
    Arrange Icons By
    Show Desktop Icons

    A simple fix if you don't want any icons displayed, as I have done with my latest version.

    If not, let me know and I'll look around.

    Mmm. Try this.

    Start
    Run
    gpedit.msc
    User Configuration
    Admin Templates
    Desktop
    "Remove Recycle Bin icon from desktop"
    Right click
    Properties
    Enabled
    OK

    yeah.

    i'll give the gpedit option a try as soon as i get home (3 hrs or so) and i'll get back to you on that matt (thx in advance because it will probably work :) ).

    if all else fails i think that i might just get the empty dent icon for it.
