Remove Files Immediately when Deleted

Hello again ladies and gentlemen. Today I want to show you guys a simple trick. Some of you might even know it already though. For those who didn't know, let me present you a way to keep your recycle bin out of work. XD.

Before we continue, you might ask me something like "What the hell ryzz, do we need to know this trick?" or "What is so important about this, huh?" Hmph, It depends on you. If you are getting tired of deleting file(s) in the recycle bin manually and you want the file(s) that you just deleted to be gone immediately without ever going to the recycle bin, then this trick is for you. Also, please keep in mind that this is for educational purpose only ok.

Back to the topic. This trick is quite simple actually. You don't even need a software to do this. It is because you just need to change the setting. But beware, this is quite risky. What I mean by that is you know... when you set to remove the files immediately, you won't get the second chance to recover the file(s) again in case you changed your mind not to remove the file(s). Hence, please do it at your own risk. So how do we do that? Easy, just follow these steps:

1) Right-Click on Recycle bin icon on your desktop and Click on Properties.
2) For every partition/disk you have, tick "Don't move files to the Recycle Bin.
    Remove files immediately when deleted".
3) Click OK.

There you go. Just a piece of cake right? See ya!

p/s: There is also another way to delete the file(s) immediately without ever changing
      the setting. To do that, just press shift + delete on the file(s).


  1. there's another trick other than change the settings ... just click on the file you want to delete and press shift+del button. your deleted file wouldn't be stored in the Recycle bin ... try this out! :)
