Can remove the recycle bin name by right clicking on the bin, goign to properites and removing the title

to change my computer name modify default at this reg key (requires reboot)
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

the recycle bin poperties should have a box called title (in a box called apperance) with the text of the recyle bin.

other wise this reg key will change it
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
(Default) String (new icon title)

Something similar to Khayman's post.

Renaming System Icons - Desktop

This tweak changes the names of sytems icons that you have showing on your desktop.
Click Start --> Run and enter REGEDIT.
Navigate to the following Registry branch:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/CLSID
The Desktop Icons are located in the sub keys as follows:
My Network Places: {208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
My Computer: {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
My Documents: {450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}
Recycle Bin:{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
Default IE Icon: {871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}
Double click the Default value in the above keys and enter the text you want to use.
Then Right click on the Desktop and select Refresh to see the changes.
To undo the changes, just right click on the Default value and select Delete. Refresh the Desktop to see that things are back to normal.

After that is done rename the recycle bin by highlighting & pressing F2 then do #1 below.

2/ Alt + 255 - Alt + 255

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
