The recycle bin is the file recycler in the root of your system disk drive.

You may be able to change the name by enumerating the desktop icons and setting the windowtext .

Have a look at . Basically it's a registry change.

Why would you want to rename recycle bin. You will probably stuff up apps that reference the file path and name. Be careful.

Simply search the registry for "Recycle Bin". I think it occurs twice.
Change the registry keys by hand or with a Delphi program.
