    • Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search or run box.
    • Go to : HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
    • create a new key called “Shell” on the left hand side
    • Create a key named “Delete” under shell
    • Create another key named “command” and set the default value of the Delete key to “Delete”, and then set the default value of command to “rundll32.exe”.

    Or else just download DisableRecycleBinDelete.reg to enter the information into the registry. There’s also an included EnableRecycleBinDelete.reg file that will set it back to normal.
