    Struggling a little here.

    I can't seem to hide the recycle bin and keep active desktop items visible on my desktop.

    Tried the NoDesktop tweak and the one that removes just the recycle bin but it keeps taking 4 active desktop items I need with it.

    Anyway got any other methods I can try to send the recycle bin to the recycler?

    Right click the desktop, "Arrange Icons By", uncheck "Show Desktop Icons"

    Or using TweakUI: Desktop, uncheck all.

    Or you could add it to the folder options.

    “Listing 3 does just that. It extends Folder Options by adding an option for showing the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop. Customizing the key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder is how you add options to this dialog box. Advanced users can use this key as a guide for how to extend it. Beginners can use this script to add an option for the Recycle Bin icon: Save Listing 3 below in the text file Binopt.reg and then double-click it. After importing Binopt.reg into the registry, a new option is listed in the Folder Options dialog box that lets you configure the Recycle Bin icon, as shown in Figure 1.”

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\RecycleBinOnDesktop]
    "RegPath"="Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\HideDesktopIcons\\NewStartPanel"
    "Text"="Show Recycle Bin icon on the desktop"
    "Type"="checkbox"
    "ValueName"="{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}"
    "CheckedValue"=dword:00000000
    "UncheckedValue"=dword:00000001
    "DefaultValue"=dword:00000001
    "HKeyRoot"=dword:80000001

    Adding recycle bin to folder options, option number 3 on page.

    Microsoft

    This works very well I’ve been using this tweak for a long time.
