When you delete any of these items from your hard disk, Windows places it in the Recycle Bin and the Recycle Bin icon changes from empty to full.
Sometimes, when using different custom icons for both the Full and Empty Recycle Bin, the icons will not change to the proper icon when filled or emptied, unless you manually refresh the Desktop.
So here is what you do: Go to Search Programs and type in regedit and then start it up by clicking on it.
Then find this key in your registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\CLSID\Default Iconfull=%System Root%\Resources\Themes\bluemoon\full.ico,0empty=%System Root%\Resources\Themes\bluemoon\void.ico,0Second, the above key shows a comma and 0 after the example files.
Well it will, but, i have to refresh the desktop or open folder to see the result. I changed the recycle bin item manually from control panel, change desktop icons. I upgraded from a Vista x64 SP2 machine and the upgrade was surprisingly smooth, with only 1 reboot needed.
