How to remove recycle bin icon in windows xp

Recycle Bin is a temporary storage for files and folders that we have deleted earlier. Sometimes we delete a file/folder accidentally, whereas we still need that file / folder. Restoring that file / folder from recycle bin, will make us get file/folder again.

To avoid things that are not desirable, we can hide the Recycle Bin icon from the desktop and also from Windows Explorer. Thus others can not easily tamper with the contents of the Recycle Bin that may we still need later. To remove or hide the Recycle Bin icon, follow these steps below :

First, run the group policy editor (gpedit)
Second, after window Group Policy Editor open, then click User
Configuration->Administrative Templates->Desktop
