O.P. Recycle Bin
As usual I'm trying to customize my computer as much as possible and as usual I'm having some trouble and again as usual I gotta ask you guys for help here 8-)
Well, my question is if I can remove the Recycle Bin icon from my desktop? I can't delete it via rightclick on it and on Properties --> Desktop --> Customize Desktop there's no Recycle Bin icon to remove..
Is there a way instead of unchecking the show desktop icons thing on rightclick?

RE: Recycle Bin
You can change it using tweakUI in XP I know for a fact, I don't think there is an equivalent for vista/7

Apparently the XP registry edit works in Vista too :)

Yes, I'm using XP and I got tweakUI but how do I delete it?

I'm not getting along with that registry edit, it's really complicated and I don't understand a thing :$

I'm not sure if you're trying to get rid of the Recycling bin only, or all the desktop icons. If you're looking to hide all the desktop icons just right click the desktop choose arrange icons by and then deselect show desktop icons.

Thats just what the OP was trying to avoid.

RE: Recycle Bin
code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\RecycleBinOnDesktop]
"RegPath"="Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\HideDesktopIcons\\NewStartPanel"
"Text"="Show Recycle Bin icon on the desktop"
"Type"="checkbox"
"ValueName"="{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}"
"CheckedValue"=dword:00000000
"UncheckedValue"=dword:00000001
"DefaultValue"=dword:00000001
"HKeyRoot"=dword:80000001


That'll work much nicer than matty's, it adds a nice little option into Folder Options meaning you can just toggle it on and off when needed, instead of re-applying two different reg files.

Add the above code to a text file and rename it <name>.reg. After saving it double click it to import to registry.

Slick vaccy! I had no idea you could do that.

One thing, don't you need to have the Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 header? I can't quite remember.
