Subject: Recycle Bin Unavailability of Service


Um... just try typing it in twice?  The first time after the first
character it goes back to recycle bin, but the second time it lets you
type in whatever you want.  I am using XP SP1.  Besides.. I don't really
see how this is a security issue, and in fact I think its rather silly

I'm sure this is related to security issues because it gets in touch
with availability. So, you may want to explore some places with your
"Windows Explorer" or "My Computer" from else where. That's make no
sense to you but ever doing exploring from "Recycle Bin" to anywhere
You can't do this and this is a kind of Unavailability!
When you clicked on "Recycle Bin" on any address bar, the word become
highlighted and when you trying to type a path, the words and phrases
you typed, turn to "Recycle Bin". This way, you cannot change
MANUALLY to any desired location from "Recycle Bin".


There's no exploit for this misbehavior but you would be aware of
unavailability this situation brings to your desktop because some day
may you have not any mouse.


This involved with Windows XP GUI behavior and may fix in future but
if you want workaround that, just copy and paste you desire path and
press "ENTER" as fast as possible.
Tested on: 
Windows XP Service Pack 1
Windows 2000 Service Pack 3
