Most satisfied here. Especially after fumbling the ball on my first carry.

I'd rather class it as a cunning lateral pass

Another problem arose. I pinned my recycle bin onto the taskbar through the "new tool bar" method, but it seems that i can only change the icon either as empty or full. How do i change it so that it reflects the recycle bin's actual status?

You'll need to change *both* icons for the Recycle Bin - one for the empty and one for the full.

Right click desktop --> Personalization --> Change Desktop Icons --> Click on Recycle Bin full icon --> Click Change icon
Do the same for the empty Recycle Bin icon next.
