A Mini Recycle Bin Icon For System Tray

The Recycle Bin usually appears on the desktop. If you wish to hide it from your desktop and want to keep it as a system tray application, here is a tiny tool called MiniBin. This portable tool adds a small icon to the system tray (see screenshot) and with a right mouse click you will be able to empty your Recycle Bin.

A small red recycle icon shown at the system tray indicates that there are files in your Recycle Bin and if there is a green icon, it means your Trash is empty. Just double click (or right click) to empty the trash.

 And how or hide the Recycle Bin on the desktop: For Windows 7, follow as given below.

Click Start button - Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization - Personalization. In the left pane, click Change desktop icons.

To remove the Recycle Bin from the desktop, uncheck the Recycle Bin check box. (Check it to display the Recycle Bin again). Click OK to save the settings.

You can download MiniBin (43Kb) at here
