    Is there away to rename the trash?

    The word just annoys me it doesn't make sense, Lol...Now this might be hard to understand if your American but ever since I got my Mac. It's annoying still.

    I've never said the word before, well at least not regularly anyway.

    Just doesn't sound right.

    Do you mean "...if you're an American..." :black: What do you want to rename it? I can't see it being called anything else but Trash...

    Hadn't gave it much thought as the previous way that someone posted didn't work. It's just Trash just sounds Weird!

    That sounds stupid aswell though... See I never liked what OS's called the "Trash" folder but I've still never been able to come up with a better name.

    Waste Hole?
    Teenage Wasteland
    Garbage
    Jive
    Black Hole
    Gone But Not Really
    ...



    That whole bit didn't work for me... I just tried it...

    cd /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/\ Contents/Resources/English.lproj
    sudo cp InfoPlist.strings InfoPlist.bak
    sudo cp InfoPlist.strings ~/Desktop/InfoPlist.txt

    I was able to navigate to English.lproj without an issue. Once I tried to execute the first sudo command, bash returned a message of :

    cp: InfoPlist.strings: No such file of directory

    when I ran the ls command, I found that there was another directory I had to go through - Contents. In there, I found something called info.plist .....any ideas? :confused:

    How about "Really old files that I think I should get rid of but not really sure, so I'll just put them in here till Tech Support comes and empties it and then I can blame them for deleteing my important files" bin?

    Well that comes from personal experience of working for Tech support.
