Replace "Set Program Access and Defaults" on XP start Menu with Recycle Bin
Posted: 01-13-2006, 07:44 PM
that let me do what I want. I'll try to be thorough to avoid
I have Windows XP and want a desktop clear of any icons, so I removed
My Computer, My Documents, Network Places, and Internet Explorer from
the Desktop. (Display Properties-->Desktop Tab-->click button that
says "Customize Desktop")
To remove the Recycle Bin from the Desktop, I used the program TweakUI.
In the new XP start menu, Places are on the right side of the menu
while programs you use often are put on the left side.
All of these places I removed from the desktop can be added to the
right side, except the Recycle Bin, and Windows XP has no User
Interface to add the Recycle Bin to the Right side of the XP start menu
(which is really stupid btw).
I know I can put a shortcut to the Recycle Bin on the left side of the
Start Menu (e.g. Pin to Start Menu), but being annul retentive as I am
I really want it on the right side with all the other places.
Could anyone give me a registry hack that would add the Recycle Bin to
the Right side of the XP Start menu???!?? If it has to replace another
shortcut to do so, I'd prefer to replace the "Set Program Access and
Defaults" (who needs to get to this a lot anyway??).
It would be cool to even rename the option in the Start Menu Properties
for adding\hiding "Set Program Access and Defaults" to say
(Right click taskbar-->Properties-->Start Menu tab-->click the
"Customize" Button-->click the "Advanced" tab).
