In one of the tutorials to change the name of the recycle bin, it says to go to Regedit. ????

What and where is that ??

once you start playing with the registry, you're not going to wann stop;

put the regedit shortcut on your desktop with this target;


C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe

ok, back to the topic;
Now, I have to tell you, I Know very little about the user interface, and I havn't done much here, but I JUST HAD TO RENAME MY "RECYCLE BIN"...sheeesh, who came up with "recycle bin"
...it's a trash can, or garbage can, or trash, or you can even call it "dealer", but you can not call it "recycle bin", so here's how to give yourself access to re nameing it.

hit that regedit shortcut you have on your desktop by now, and go here;

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-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 "re name" becomes available.

1.) right click on your desktop, click New> Text Document.
2.) Open the document up.
3.) Paste the following code in it:

Code:
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
4.) Save the document as 'rename.reg' without the quotes.
5.) Run rename.reg
6.) After that you should be able to rename your recycle bin just like my computer or my documents.

;)
