    Easiest way would be using TweakUI (Desktop - uncheck Recycle Bin).

    Or manually in the registry create or modify

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel
    {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} REG_DWORD 0x00000001

    bman™ don't tell me you see any difficulties in remembering something like {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
    :p


    Actually in this case I changed the setting with TweakUI and monitored it with RegShot to see what it changes. Quite simple.
