Quick Tip: Bypass The Recycle Bin and Permanently Delete Files (Windows)

Radford C. Feb 1, 2012 0

If you’re one of those who’s always sure of deleting files especially when you know the files are just too big to delete press the Del key, press Shift+Del, then Shift+Enter to confirm. If you prefer to just permanently delete the files no matter what it is you’re deleting  right-click on the Recycle Bin, then choose Properties. Click on the drive you want to disable the Recycle Bin for, then select “Don’t move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted.” Click the OK or Apply button to save the changes.
