Hi guys, today I am going to teach you How To Rename Your Recycle Bin.

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” (doubleclick
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

Right-click the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop and click Rename and rename it
to whatever you wish.


  1. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
