If you just want the recycle bin in the systray area on your main PC, then another way is to add it via quick launch. Right-click taskbar, toolbars, add ... %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch ... Unlock taskbar, untick show text/titles, tick large icons under view, lock taskbar. You can now drag items to this and they'll be added to the RB; right-click lets you empty it, and of course clicking it will open it.

Then you're free to remove that damned icon from the desktop. I know this isn't portable and of course it doesn't have the extra functions, but again, this is just if you want it in your tray on your main PC.

@fullbug/bzl333: can you both confirm that you're actually referring to MicroBin, and not MiniBin (by the same author, see http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2081 )?

excellent program, double-click on the icon "just empties the damn trash" lol. no need to minimize windows to find the recycle bin, no need to respond to "Are you sure you want to empty the trash" dialogues.

By the way, anyone know how to use the themes that come with it?

What a cool little program, like it!

Although I disabled trash bin on my XP and can't use MicroBin, it always makes me happy when I see it )))
