Default XP Tips

Does any one have any tips or ways to customize XP? Also, I have always wondered how the recycle bin works. Does anyone know?

as for HOW
it doesnt literally delete things, it deletes the directory that tells XP its there, then it writes over it with whatever other program you add

The recycle bin is actually not that interesting, at least to me its not from a technological standpoint. My understanding is that when a file is moved to the recycle bin, nothing happens to the actual file until the bin is empted then the files is deleted. It sort of like a holding place for the marker for the file.

make sure you check the box that says "dont remove items to the recycle bin. Remove items immediately"
