Renaming the Recycle bin!!!

on Sunday, October 4, 2009


Ever tried of renaming the Recycle bin? You cannot do that unless you change a key value in the Registry...

I shall tell you what to do....

Open up Registry editor by clicking start and selecting run and typing regedit.

In the H_KEY CLASSES_ROOT folder, go to CLSID subfolder and look for the key name -- {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} folder >ShellFolder

Now change the value of Attributes from "40 01 00 20" to "70 01 00 20"

Now close the Registry editor and restart your computer. Now if you right click the Recycle bin, you ll get the Rename option..... Enjoy...
