Add Recycle Bin in Computer on Windows 7/Vista


Here is a small registry hack to let you display the Recycle Bin shortcut in Computer.

Open the start Menu, enter regedit and do Entry.

Before any manipulation, make a backup of the registry, you never know!

In the Registry Editor, search for the following key using the tree:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace

We're going to have to create a new key in the registry. To do this, right-click on Namespace, choose to Nouveau then Key. Name it like this:

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

Close the Register, open Computer and admire the result: your trash is here!
