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
(Default) String (new icon title)

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
