How to remove recycle bin icon from desktop in XP?

Is there a way to do it without TweakUI?


And if not, where can I get Tweak UI?

That's the easiest way.

You should be able to get it from Microsoft.

I'm doing this from memory since I'm at work, but here it goes:

Right-click on the desktop.
There should be a setting called "Show icons on desktop"
Uncheck this setting.

If this is inaccurate I'll post when I get home in a few hours.

This does not remove any icons it just hides all icons on the desktop. There still there and you can access them in Windows Explorer.
