    Im trying to use XP without any icons on the desktop just using quicklaunch and so forth. Ive goten rid of every icon but the darn recycle bin. Is there any way to delete this off of the desktop? i plan on putting it in the start menu.

    Add this registry value

    {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} REG_DWORD 0x00000001

    to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel
    or/and
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\ClassicStartMenu

    If any of the above keys isn't there, create it.

    download this, in it is TweakUI, run that and click desktop and then you can add and remove desktop icons

    XP PowerToys

    Also that right click on the desktop hides all icons on your desktop even any folders that you might put on there
