How to Rename the Recycle Bin

Want to rename your Recycle Bin to something more funny? Like dust bin, hungry bin, litter box etc. Just follow the simple steps and you will be able to change the name of your Recycle Bin.

  • Go to Start > Run and type regedit to open Registry Editor.
  • Now navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/CLSID/{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}.
  •  Now select (Default) , right-click it and select Modify.
  • The current value would be Recycle Bin. Change it to whatever you want.

I have renamed my Recycle Bin to Dust Bin :D . One more thing, make a backup of your registry before trying out any tricks. I won’t be responsible for any damage to your system.

I hope you enjoyed this little trick.
