Registry Editing Tips

More Recycle Bin Fun

The Recycle Bin is a funny thing - it has a lot of limitations compared to other normal icon. But we discovered that you can do all sorts of weird things with the context menu. This tip will only show you how do fool around with the context menu of the icon and and appearance of the icon. What you can do with it we are not so sure.

Open up the registry editor and go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder.

Restore the Recycle Bin to Windows defaults including un-deleting the icon after deletion, go to

And some more practically useless edits to the context menu go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder

The above edits are more to the fun side than useful but the Rename & Delete can be quite useful sometimes. You don't have to worry about deleting it since you can always call it back.
