Rename the recycle bin

In this post, I'll show you how to change the name since a "simple right click and click rename" does not work on your XP. You'll have to edit the registry, so it's advisable to back up your registry first.
So let's go.

Before the tweak, my desktop was like this:

desktop
Desktop before tweak



Open the registry editor (windows key + R, type regedit and press enter)
run dialog
Once the registry editor is open, browse to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
Registry editor
 To the right, double click the item with (Default) as its name
 
A dialog box appears as shown below. In the field named "value data", type in the name you would like to give to your recycle bin. I used Rubbish Can as shown below.

Edit value data
 The last task is for you to refresh on the desktop.

 The change is then done! Happy tweaking!!!!!!!
