Add rename option for Recycle BIN
Microsoft Windows users:
  1. Click Start / Run
  2. Type regedit and press enter.
  3. Open the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT folder
  4. Open the CLSID folder
  5. Open the {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} folder
  6. Open the ShellFolder folder
  7. Change the Attributes data value from 40 01 00 20 to 50 01 00 20. Once completed, change the CallForAttributes dword value to 0x00000000 (double-click and change value data to 0). You must change both of these values to get the rename to appear.
