Rename Recycle Bin


Many of us have a thought about changing name of Recycle bin but don’t know how to.It is not an ordinary icon unlike folders or other sort of icons.I will give u the way how to customize it according to our taste.Here are 2 methods which I am elaborating:

Method 1

1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type regedit and hit ENTER
4. In the registry editor go to the following key:


5. Double click on the following value:


6. Change the value to whatever you wish.
7. Click OK and close out regedit
8. Click on a blank area of the desktop and select refresh from the context menu.
9. After the screen refreshes, you recycle bin will be renamed to whatever you decided.

Method 2

  1. Click Start / Run
  2. Type regedit and press enter.
  3. Open the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT folder
  4. Open the CLSID folder
  5. Open the {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} folder
  6. Open the ShellFolder folder
  7. Change the "Attributes" data value from "40 01 00 20" to "50 01 00 20". Once completed change the "CallForAttributes" dword value to "0x00000000" (double-click and change value data to 0). You must change both of these values to get the rename to appear.

After performing the above steps you will be able to rename the icon like any other icon. Right-click the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop and click Rename and rename it to whatever you wish.

Hope This is helpful to u.
