=The recycle icons in imageres.dll are 54 and 55 in "Icon Group"

When you go there in "reshacker" you will get an error - "Out of resources", as I recall. Just click past that. Replace the group with the single icon you want. It works for me, using either large or small icons on the desktop or taskbar.
Thanks for replying
I don't know too much about reshacker but I think it is for 32 bit and I have 64bit.

You're right - reshacker is for 32 bit. "Restorator" works in both 32 and 64 bit. Here's the link to the trial download version - Download Trial Version - Restorator - Bome Software

(I used it to remove the logon/logoff brand marking at the bottom of the screen, then removed it.)

Where do you have the custom icons that you're using for the full and empty recycle bin?



What I have done for me is I've made a New Library in Libraries, for all my custom icons, which I've named "Icons". That way when I change the recycle bin full and empty from Personalization-Change Desktop Icons, I can just click on the full one and the empty one and Browse to the location of my Icon library I made, pick the icons I want for each. Then it will switch from %SystemDrive% to %USERPROFILE%

Default Windows icons

Custom icons pointing to my Icon Library with comma and zero at ends.

Then I open regedit, and put the ,0 on the end of the 3 strings. It should work that way.

It's one way you can try if you like.

I have no idea why adding ,0 works but it did and I think tonight I will sleep.

Thank you so much for your time Airbot and also TheSchaft for his help.

No problem. That's what this tutorial is for, adding the ,0 at the end for it to work.

Recycle Bin refresh related to desktop refresh

Had siimliar problem on notebook with new install of Windows 7. Whenever I deleted items they would not disappear from folder in explorer unless I manually refreshed and would not appear in Recycle Bin unless I refreshed screen manually. Found out it is related to Aero Themes. Whenever I choose a desktop picture from the Aero group, problem occurs. If I reboot problem temporaily disappears, but returns shortly. Choose a picture from the internet or your personal pictures and problem will disappear. Use this procedure until Microsoft issues a fix.
