    This trick allows you to change the name of the Windows Recycle Bin. It involves the registry. If you are not familiar with it, do not hesitate to make a backup.

    Click Start, Run, type regedit and then press the Enter key. Go to the following key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ CLSID \ (645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E).

    Double click right on the value chain named (Default) and assign the value of your choice (this value corresponds to the name you want to assign to the trash). Then restart your computer.
