Rename recycle bin to whatever u want in XP :D

This procedure is useful in Windows XP only!

> We all know that windows XP does not allow renaming of recycle bin, but by following a simple registry tweak we can rename it to whatever we want like dump, trash, garbage etc.
Here's the procedure-

1. Start > Run > Regedit
2. Press 'Ctrl'+'F' to open find box and type 'Recycle Bin' to search.
3. Change any value data with 'Recycle Bin' to whatever name you want to give it ( ie, like 'Trash Can' or 'Dump' etc).
4. Press F3 to continue searching for 'Recycle Bin' and change wherever you come across 'Recycle Bin' to new its new name.
5. Repeat step 4 until you have finished with searching and changed all values to its new name.
6. Close regedit and hit F5 on desktop to see the new name on screen.
Thats it.... such a simple procedure... have fun!

Note: As a good practice, always backup your registry before changing anything although changing 'Recycle Bin' name is a simple tweak and doesnt affect anything else.
