Step 1: Opening Regedit

it really worked so glad.
my friend was able to right click and rename it...
well on newer OS like windows 7 you can just do that. on XP you need this steps
lol, nice
oh, and when I click on the recycle bin download button, all it does is download a .tmp file
hmm there's something wrong, it supposed to be the .exe file. and i'm not sure where in which computer and hard drive i put the file in, so i cant reupload it
Strange im a bit of a computer helper and I want to ask you,cant you just right click and hit re-name? I dident check
In Vista, right click>rename works.
Works for me in Windows 7<br />
Right click and Re-naming wont work in xp maybe you can do it on vista (which i dont know because i didnt have vista)
I dont have vista to.
no you can't. it doesn't show up and slowly double clicking it doesn't work ether
You can also change the icon through Right-Click\Properties\Desktop\Customize Desktop. You can download icons at iconarchive.com.<br /> <br /> Where'd you get the wallpaper? A digital-art collector like myself would kill for such a glorious image.
sorry for the late reply, i've been inactive for long.<br /> <br /> i'm sure you will like this website:<br /> <a href="http://www.thelightworks.com/" rel="nofollow">http://www.thelightworks.com/</a><br /> it has a whole bunch of such sci-fi pictures, including that one<br />
Now, you don't even have to go into regedit! Simply copy n' paste the following code into notepad, and save it as Recycle Bin Renamer.bat. Yes, include both "::::" just to make sure you get the whole code.
Make sure the name is:<br/><pre>Recycle Bin Renamer.bat</pre>
