How to restore Recycle Bin after deleting

Remember the post I did, on how you can remove the recycle bin permanently. LOL, a non-geekish friend of mine tried that, and successfully removed his recycle bin from his desktop. But now, he wants it back. I even told him how to do it, but still he asked for a tutorial. So this tutorial is dedicated to my friend, Fouzan :cool:

It’s very simple! You just have to reverse the old trick :wink:

Remember: Backup your registry first!

First, open your Registry Editor (Run > type regedit) and navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace

Now, do you remember what you did to remove the recycle bin? Well, you deleted the following entry:

{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}

But to restore it back, you will have to create this back. After navigating to the above path, right-click on NameSpace, click “New” and then click “Key”.

Name the key: {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}

Now close the Registry Editor and you’ll see your Recycle Bin back in its place. :wink:

Finally, after a long time, Windows Live Mail has upgraded their features and that too for the free users as well.

The major upgrade is the Inbox size of the free and paid users. Yes, it’s true that they have upgraded the usual 4GB space to 5GB now. And the paid users get 10GB space.

This is not all, they have also tweaked a few parts that were slow and there’s also been an increase on the amount of time messages are left in the spam and deleted items folders. Duplicate contact entries can now be merged into one. As soon as you will be adding a duplicate contact entry, it will notify you that there’s already an entry made with that name. Some improvements have been made in the spam-fighting technology, and some upgrades are still to come. They are still on their way and will be aplied soon. Such as, auto-away message will be added (would be useful when you are on a holiday) and account forwarding option will also be avaialable soon to everyone. This way you will be able to forward your account email to Gmail or Yahoo.
