    Pin Recycle Bin?


    Possible theoretically? cuz when you try to drag it to the superbar it puts a windows explorer view, with the recyclebin at the top

    Hi Kryptonit,

    You might see if using RocketDock may work better for you to pin (drag) it to.

    Hope this helps,

    Me...I really like the Recycle Bin icon.
    I like the looks of the empty basket and I use larger desktop icons because of that very icon, but I'd really like to see the basket's icon kinda reflect how much waste is in it!
    Wouldn't that be cool to see the paper pile up in it as things are sent there? Like a reflection of how much garbage you have in it and when it needs to be emptied.

    recycle bins are always the coolest to skin for full and empty :)

    There is another icon in Personalize - Change Desktop icons, which will show you just that "Recycle Bin-Full"
    It will only show up on the desktop when you have put something in it.

    Why not send that feedback to microsoft, you never know they may add it

    Yes..I know Dave..
    That's why I would like to see the basket fill up gradually and not just full after one item.

    @Digger - Yah, I would have thought someone has already made a skin like that, but after the issues I had with some skins in XP, I haven't ever wanted to do that again. I could probably make a few icons myself with different levels of fullness, and then just hack them into the shell dll, but that just seems like too much bloody work...
