    I'm almost possitive it is possible to rename the recycle bin icon. If any of you could help me and tell me which files to edit in the reg (or if there is an easier way), i would be really greatful. Thanks.

    Hi Ferrari600, there are two ways you acn acomplish this.

    1.)

    Rename the Recycle Bin
    (by Perris, aka "Dealer")
    Make your way here :
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF
    040-5081-101B-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 "rename" becomes available.

    2.)


    Or, paste this into a txt file and rename it to xx.reg:

    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
