Default Recycle Bin Removal

Hey guys, I was wondering if there was any program that can help me remove my Recycle Bin. It's kinda disturbing my clean desktop.

TweakUI should be able to... Or try Solaris and accidentally delete your Recycle Bin as I did ^^;;

Get TweakUI from here... http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx

Then after you have installed it, open it to Desktop / Desktop Icons untick Recycle Bin, then click on OK...

Another thing you might like to do in TweakUI, is get rid of the mongrel arrow on shortcut icons.

Open TweakUI to Explorer / Shortcut put a dot in None then click apply...

No it was not invisible, I just provided the link to TweakUI. I also showed Alvino where to find the relevant parts in it...

uhhhh you can do it without a program. Right click on your desktop and go to arrange icons by and uncheck show desktop icons. Its easy as 1-2-3 but people miss it a lot.
