Disguise any folder to Recycle Bin

You can disguise your folder into recycle bin looks. Use this trick and this will change your folder icon to a recycle bin icon.

Rename any folder with the extension {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}

You’re all done. This will replace the original folder icon with that of the recycle bin icon.

For example, if you want a folder named “pages” to be renamed to “pg” and it’s icon be changed to that of recycle bin, you have to rename the shortcuts folder as “pg.{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}”.

This will change your folder icon to recycle bin icon. But remember, this is a normal folder and unlike recycle bin, it can be deleted by anyone. To revert the folder icon to its original icon, remove the extension using “ren pg.{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} pg” in DOS.
