Windows 7: Control Panel - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

Recycle Bin appeared

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
The REG file below will remove it for you.
This is exactly what I wanted (to add All Control Panel Item, not to remove it)! But under Desktop, not under MyComputer. So I just tried to add this key :

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
And it worked!... But it also add a control panel icon to my desktop. So I just deleted the new key, and for a reason I don't understand, I now have the Recycle Bin in my Navigation pane under Desktop.

I tried to remove it (again) with this tuto :

Recycle Bin - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

But it doesn't work. Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks!

Hello Carococoline, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post screenshots of what you are currently seeing just to see if something else may stand out as a cause?

In addition, check to see if this may be the issue or not.

Hello Brink,

Thanks for your quick answer. This is a screenshot of my Windows Explorer :

The red dot marks the Recycle Bin I would like to remove. Like I said, I tried this tuto :

Recycle Bin - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

With no result. I even restored my system and it's still there. I recently updated Classic Shell. But I don't see any option that could have cause the recycle bin to appear.

I'm not sure if the theme you are using may have an effect on this or not, but could you export and upload the registry keys below for the Recylcle Bin in explorer? I'll take a look at it to see if something may be there as a cause.

Code:
 
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder
 
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Classes\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder

Even with Aero theme, after rebooting explorer.exe, the Recycle Bin is still there. I also looked for the two keys you just indicated, and I already had them. And there is no PinToNameSpaceTree key in.

Thank you for your support.

Yes, but could you export and upload those keys so that I could look to see if there may be anything else in those entries that should not be there?

LOL, no problem.

Well, they have the same default entries that I have on my system, so that's not the problem area.

I must admit that I'm not sure what the cause of the Recycle Bin sticking there is.

Well... thank you for having tried. I also checked my hard disk drive for error... nothing. I'll be back if I find something.
Thanks again for your help and all your great tuto.
