How do you rename recycle bin?

I thought I knew how to do this. I had used a method of doing it in 98 but it doesn't work for xp. Here is what I used that didn't work.


1.Open RegEdit (select Run in the Start menu and enter RegEdit in the text box).
2.Open HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and locate CLSID (the Class ID option). Scroll down to the
{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} key and click it.
3.In the right-hand window, double-click (Default), and change the name from Recycle Bin to whatever you prefer.
4.Click OK and close RegEdit.
5.To make the new name take effect, click once anywhere on the desktop, then press the F5 key.

I have seen all the tweaks on this site but can't find a tweak for renaming the recycle bin.

So how is it done?

OK, I found it on tweakxp.com.

It was stated to copy this to notepad and save as a .reg file. Here it is

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder]
"Attributes"=hex:50,01,00,20
"CallForAttributes"=dword:00000000


Well I did that (named it "renamebin.reg")and when I clicked on it, I got a message saying it was not a valid registry script and could not be imported to the registry.

Well I located the entries manually in the registry from the above entries and changed them that way and it worked. I can now rename the bin by right clicking on it and the "rename" option is there now.

Anyone know why the above script wouldn't work as a .reg file?

you forgot the "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" at the beginning, it should be:

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

No, I had copied the text each way. That's what I had thought at first so I made another file with it there. I had made two files, one with and one without that part.

I got the same message when trying to execute each one.

or if you have norton utilities, renaming the bin is a option on properties

Excuse me, you're right.

Jeez, I had made the second one and then my stupid ass had clicked on the first one again.

Hmm. I have always tried to use that one on my wife but for some strange reason she isn't buying it!

Use this reg-file and add renaming to your right mouse click

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
