Hi,

Are you an administrator of the computer? If not, you must use an administrator account to be able to make changes in the registry.

If you're an administrator, open the Start menu and search for "regedit" in the search bar. Right-click on it and select Run as administrator.

Once you've opened the registry with administrator rights, follow the steps in this article to rename the recycle bin.

Right-click on each folder you want to edit and choose Permissions. In the new window, select Users from the Group or user names list and allow the Full control.

Once you've allowed the full control, click the Advanced button. Next, in the Advanced Security Settings, at the top, click on Change.

In the Enter the object name to select field, enter the username of your computer account or the email address of your Microsoft account, if it is associated with your computer. Next, click on the Check Names button.

Then close all windows by clicking Ok.
right-click on recycle bin does not offer permissions!

When you've found the key to be edited in the registry, right-click in the left pane on the folder where that key is located. Then you'll find the Permissions option.
