    Hellow, dude. Thank you for your wellcome message. I was wodering... I do not use the Windows folders ("Picutures", "Video", Documents", etc) to put my files. I use to creat a folder on root directory and put my files there. So... Do you think is there a way to make Windows explorer shows "local disk" instead of "This Computer"? I am not sure I was clear enough....

    Hello Joshua,

    Using the method in the tutorial below should still work to change the Recycle Bin icon in the navigation pane as well.
