Here is an easy way to add "Rename" to the right click context menu of the XP recycle bin.

Open Notepad.
Paste in the code below---

[codebox]Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


"Save As" say "recycler.reg".

Save to Desktop for easy access.
Right click it & choose "Merge".
Right click Recycle Bin & see "Rename" as an option.
Rename it to what you wish.

You can change the icon too.
That is simple.

Not worth going into.

Maybe someone else will expand on that subject.

I hope this helps someone.

Warning: This is a registry edit and it is not advised for beginners, and it is advisable to backup your registry before attempting this.

True.Not advised for beginners.
But it does work with no ill effects.
Before trying it one should be sure of how to do it properly.
This forum is a great source of good advice on how to do something like this properly. :thumbsup:
