       Yes, you read it right .You can change the name of Recycle Bin of your system if you wish. It is very easy and interesting but it require some changes in windows registry.

Follow these steps :-

1. First click on the Start button and click Run

2. Type regedit.exe or just regedit and press enter.


3. In regedit editor open HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT folder, in this folder open the CLSID folder then open the {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} folder and then ShellFolder folder at last.


4. Here simply change the data value from "40 01 00 20" to "50 01 00 20".

5. 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 option to appear


    After performing all above steps close registry now check for rename option after right clicking on Recycle Bin icon if it doesn’t appear then restart your computer then again check this time you will find rename option. 


Now you can change new name as you wish.


Isn’t it interesting ?

Enjoy ! 😉
