How do you hide the recycling bin!?!?! and not the rest of the folders on the desktop?

Download TweakUI from Microsoft. It has an option to hide the Recycle Bin in there.

Nice Desktops everyone!!! :thumbup

TweakUI has many other really handy features... it's only a few KB download.

But if you still don't want to, there's a registry entry that you can modify to hide the recycling bin. I don't know exactly what it is, but I know that you can find it in the Unattended Windows section in the Registry Tweaks thread.

EDIT - Oh... and a quick simple search for "Hide Recycle Bin" does the trick too... ;)

if you have XP Pro:

click Start > run > gpedit.msc

click user configuration > adminstrative temlpates > desktop

on the right hand you will find Remove recycle bin

double click on it > enabled

also you will find a lot of other options there...

@ puner89, yes this is because windows MCE is XP Pro + MC applications.

@ Ivanov : i like your taskbar, i think you had rearranged the toolbars in a new way...?

also, what is this style ? is it Royal ?
