    When I had XP Pro I could tweak the registry to rename the recycle bin. Now that I have XP Home Edition in I can't get it to work no matter how much tweaking I do. Does anyone know how to do this in a diff way ??

    for those interested,, copy the following into notepad;
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder]
    "Attributes"=hex:50,01,00,20
    "CallForAttributes"=dword:00000000
    
    save that as "rename recycle bin.reg" right on your desktop

    then just double click, you will then have rename as a right click option for your recycle bin
