I changed Desktop Recycle Bin default icons to custom ones. But the problem is that the icons dont switch by themselves.
I have to manually refresh desktop for icons to change (full/empty).
Step 2: In the left pane, click Change desktop icons to open Desktop icons settings box. Step 2: Right-click on the file and then select Open. Note that this will also enable Recycle Bin option in Desktop icon settings box. If one of your computers is running on Windows 8, we encourage you check out how to enable or disable delete confirmation box (Are yous sure you want to move this to Recycle Bin) in Windows 8.
One possible way would be to hack the icon into the DLL itself where the system gets the original Icon, and dont try to change it in the system, which is not very practical. :) You can do this by changing some values in registry.
In this topic I'm going to tell solution of another common problem in Windows Vista.
If you have recently installed or upgraded to Windows 10 from a previous version of Windows and have started exploring Windows 10, you will notice the new set of icons on the desktop, file explorer, and other areas of the operating system.
The new Recycle Bin icon is not great but looks decent when it’s full.
