Recommended Posts

Hey guys, check it out :D

Edit: I've just checked into some of this and it looks rather... weird.

A person has taken the regtweak, and modified the beginning piece of it and taken our names out and said it was by him.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

I know I shouldn't really think of it this way, but come on.

I'm going to modify the original post to fix this hopefully.

Nice work lads, smooth. I downloaded it though, and when I click it it just opens up C:\ , not the recycle bin. When I try to open the registry call (ie {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} ) it does the same too..!

Any ideas anyone? As far as I'm aware, my recycle bin is actually at E:\Recycled if that's any help...

Thanks for any advice,

You used it on Vista. This reg tweak is for XP only right now. I haven't had the time to try and make it work for Vista, but maybe theres someone who can convert it to Vista for you.
