  1. It is part of the two step procedure to delete items. Do you empty the contents of the trash bin? :?:
  2. no i never use it

  3. No you can't there is a powertoy on microsoft for download though which enables you to not display the Recycle bin here's the link-

    it's the Tweak UI program i use it all the time it's great clean and simple i also use the alt-tab replacement program which is also very efficient
  4. thx :)
  5. If using XP Pro

    Go to START > RUN

    Type GPEDIT.MSC

    Navagate to USER CONFIGURATION >ADMINISTRATIVE TEMPLATES >Click on DESKTOP,

    On the right hand pane find " Remove Recycle Bin icon on the desktop " , double left click on it to ENABLE it.

    Sorted!

    If using XP Home

    Either use TweakUI or make the change manually in the registry.

    Create or modify the following registry entry

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel

    {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}

    REG_DWORD

    0x00000001
