Creative Recycle Bin Icons

If you are tired to see your old recycle bine icon, this post will help you change it. I’ve collected 15 good looking but also creative icons that will look very good on your desktop.

To change the recycle bin icon, follow these easy steps :

1. Right-click on an empty portion of your desktop and click on the Personalize menu option

2. Now you should click on the Change desktop icons menu option

3. At this screen you can select the icons that you want to appear on your desktop. In order to make it so a certain icon appears on your desktop, simply put a checkmark next to each icon that you want. You may have also noticed a checkbox labeled Allow themes to change desktop icons. If you select this option, when you install a new Windows 7 theme, the theme is allowed to change the icon used to represent the various desktop icons. When you are done selecting the icons you want, click on the Apply button and then click on the OK button. You will now be back at your Windows desktop and you will see the various desktop icons that you have chosen.
