My Recycle Bin


Mr. Sushi

I would like to know how to remove the recycle bin shortcut off by desktop? If that's possible? I mean where is it actually in my HD or does it reside on my desktop?! I know you guyz make think i'm weird but i would just like a answer. help will be appreciated, thanks.


I'm Beginning Somehow...
I use Tweakui for XP..... Try and search for 'Powertoys for XP' There you can remove it from the desktop... I ain't never heard of another way....
go into the registry and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\mircosoft\windows\current verison\explorer\desktop\name space

and then look in there for one that says recycle bin and delete the entire key. The changes take effect immeaditly just refresh your desktop

Mr. Sushi

is there any way i can just disable it? or take it off and have the option of putting it back?

Yes , u can select an aoption : Remove files without putting them into Recycle bin . With reg. keys u can disable it but not enable it then .
TweakUI is one of the PowerToys made by M$.
What you need to get is TweakUI for Windows XP

You can follow this link:

It will basically allow you to customize your OS without venturing into the registry.
Some changes (those that modify anything under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE in the registry) will affect all users, while others (that make changes to HKEY_CURRENT_USER) will only affect your user account.

Good luck! :)
