Here games is the name of the folder earlier to renaming


if there is a folder on DESKTOP named "games"

then press F2 on it and rename it as

This will make the duplicate of the RECYCLE BIN. This will make the two recycle bin on the desktop.

How to Resizing the Recycle Bin:

By default, the maximum size of the Recycle Bin on your hard drive is 10 percent of the size of the hard drive. Example, a 10GB hard drive has a maximum Recycle Bin size of 1GB - that's a lot of space to use up for files you've decided to delete. If you delete an file that would cause the Recycle Bin to exceed that size, Windows will warn you with an error message.

You may decide either to raise this limit or lower it, either of which you can do by following this procedure:

* You need to right-click the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop, and then choose Properties from the shortcut menu. You will see the Properties dialog box of the Recycle Bin.

* The Properties dialog box contains a Global tab, plus a tab for each hard drive on your system. If you want to change the maximum size setting for all the hard drives at once, set the new maximum size of the Recycle Bin (as a percentage of total drive space) by moving the slider on the Global tab. Then click OK. Skip the remaining steps.

* You may want to reset the maximum Recycle Bin size for only a single hard drive, and leaving the others the same, you need to select the Configure Drives Independently radio button on the Global tab.

* Click on the tab for the drive you want to change. Set the slider on that tab. Then click OK.

Even deleting a file from the Recycle Bin doesn't destroy the information right away. Windows makes the file's disk space available for reassignment, but doesn't immediately write over that disk space. People with the proper tools could still read the file. To prevent this, you need file-deletion software that is not part of Windows.

Now if you want to stop sending deleted files to the Recycle Bin

* You need to right-click the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop, and choose Properties from the shortcut menu. You will see the Properties dialog box of the Recycle Bin.

* On the Global tab of the Properties dialog box (or on the tab corresponding to the particular drive whose Recycle Bin you are turning off, if the Configure Drives Independently option is chosen on the Global tab), check the box labeled Do Not Move Files To The Recycle Bin. Remove Files Immediately When Deleted.
* Click OK.

* After you complete this procedure, files you delete from your hard drive are gone, just as are files deleted from floppy drives. Files that were already in the Recycle Bin, however, remain there until you empty the Recycle Bin, delete them, restore them, or move them to another folder.

You can turn the Recycle Bin back on by following the same procedure, but unchecking the check box.
