    In one of the tutorials to change the name of the recycle bin, it says to go to Regedit. ????

    What and where is that ??

    once you start playing with the registry, you're not going to wann stop;

    put the regedit shortcut on your desktop with this target;


    C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe

    b man...all these are tweaks on the my favorite tweak thread...very cool thread, and lots of fun to read, but if you don't want to go thumbing around, download the zip that's on that thread...unbelievable

    ok, back to the topic;
    Now, I have to tell you, I Know very little about the user interface, and I havn't done much here, but I JUST HAD TO RENAME MY "RECYCLE BIN"...sheeesh, who came up with "recycle bin"
    ...it's a trash can, or garbage can, or trash, or you can even call it "dealer", but you can not call it "recycle bin", so here's how to give yourself access to re nameing it.

    hit that regedit shortcut you have on your desktop by now, and go here;

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder

    change "Attributes" to show 50,01,00,20
    change "CallForAttributes" to show 00000000

    now you just right click on the bin, and "re name" becomes available.

    1.) right click on your desktop, click New> Text Document.
    2.) Open the document up.
    3.) Paste the following code in it:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645F F040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder] "Attributes"=hex:70,01,00,20 "CallForAttributes"=dword:00000000 
    4.) Save the document as 'rename.reg' without the quotes.
    5.) Run rename.reg
    6.) After that you should be able to rename your recycle bin just like my computer or my documents.

    ;)
