Notice this requires altering the registry so please make a back up of the registry first if you do not know what you doing!



First open NotePad or any other text editor program like WordPad and write or copy this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder]
"Attributes"=hex:50,01,00,20
"CallForAttributes"=dword:00000000

Save it in a safe place with the name you want, but put instead .txt put .reg format, for example RenameRecycleBin.reg, .reg files have to see with Windows Registry files, an entry for the registry.

When saved execute it and click ok to the popup. Go to the desktop and right-click Recycle Bin and "voila" there you have the "Rename" option in the menu.

In case you want to remove the option open notepad or any other text editor and type or write this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder]
"Attributes"=hex:40,01,00,20
"CallForAttributes"=dword:00000000

Save it in a safe place with desired name but remember, put .reg format. Execute it and the option disappears .

This is a nice trick to get the Recycle Bin renamed, which canīt be done without doing this

Brunt, you're a hacker! One of the only cool things, IMHO, that norton CleanSweep did was to add the rename functionality to my recycle bin. I've missed my Joe's Garbage on the desktop since I uninstalled the SystemWorks 2002. :thumbsup:

Im might be a hacker in sort's of the old term not the new! The new I believe are now called coders! (but still mainstream hackers)

Well, I like to customize my desktop, CGM. I change it around fairly frequently. One good one I had was the "Dude" in a lime green suit struttin' his stuff off the Grateful Dead album "Shakedown Street" I renamed the NP Protected Recycle Bin at the time to: Joe's Garbage 'cause it looked better sittin' there in the lower right-hand corner.

When I ran the SystemWorks Suite (now expired) I used the WinDoc, DiskDoc, CleanSweep & Ghost features the most (I didn't prefer the Anti-virus) I nicked a system file once using the CleanSweep and crashed completely ...had to re-format. The Ghost, at that time, didn't work all that well with the NTFS one my disks, either (for me, at least) But, I did like the way CleanSweep changed the name of the recyle bin, and as a side benefit, it added the "rename" possibility to the popup menu when right-clickin' the bin...Like it is now

So, that's why I saluted the Col. Joe's Garbage is back without a big, complex application doing it for me. :thumbsup:
