remove text from recycle bin/my computer

is this possible? its the only icons on my desktop and would look much better without the text

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)
i removed the text from default but got nothing after reboot and the recycle bin properties has nothing about no displaying text... any other deas?
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)
See how this goes>>

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:
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.

1/ Alt(hold) + 255(let go) (Numeric Keys) [enter]

2/ Alt + 255 - Alt + 255

3/ Alt + 255 - Alt + 255 - Alt + 255

4/ Alt + 255 - Alt + 255 - Alt + 255 - Alt + 255
