Default Names of Desktop Objects

Can I change the default names of objects on my desktop? For example, I don't like the name Recycle Bin, but I can't change it by right-clicking the highlighted name. Do you have a solution?

You can work around this problem easily. Open regedit and use Edit, Find to locate Recycle Bin. Now, you can use Edit, Modify to change the string value from Recycle Bin to, for example, Trash Bin. You must reboot the system for the change to take effect.
