Deleting Files without moving them to the Recycle Bin

By: Arie Slob

When you want to Delete files without moving them to the Recycle Bin, hold down the Shift key while pressing Delete (or right-clicking Delete with the Mouse).

The above solution lets you select files to delete immediately, you can also make this a default solution for all files you want to delete:

  1. Right-click the Recycle Bin and select Properties
  2. On the Global Tab, select Do not move files to the Recycle Bin

If you select Configure drives independently, you can choose from which drive you want to delete files immediately.
