Hi,

I would like to know how to change the icons of the recycle bin in
Windows XP. This was very easy on Win 98 but apparently damn site near
impossible on XP.

I have new Longhorn icons and it would just be kinda cool to use them.

Thank you


If anyone can help I can send you the small file np...

Hi

Rightclick somewhere on the desktop, select Properties, Desktop. Find the
Icon representing your Recycle Bin, select: Change Icon. Click OK

Best regards

I forgot:

After Desktop, select Customize Desktop and after Change Icon you have to
browse to your new Icon

Right click on the Desktop and select Properties.
Select Desktop Tab
Select "Customize Desktop"
Make sure General tab is selected.

Select the Icon/s you wish to change "Change Icon"
Then browse to the Icon/s of your choice.
