    How to change the stock icon for the Recycle Bin


    Hi everybody. Just upgraded to the newest Windows-10, and it all replaced my favorite "Recycle Bin" with the usual Microsoft icon.

    I've also lost how to replace that icon with the one I want.

    Can someone help?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I did the change as explained in the tutorial, all worked perfect. But when I move a file to recycle bin it still shows empty icon! if I log out or reboot, then it shows the recycle bin as full correctly. anyone know if there is a solution to fix this?!

    Edit: Finally no need to logout or restart, but I need to refresh (F5) on desktop for the change to show each time!
