Deleting a file completely without sending to Recycle Bin

Am I able to delete a file completely without sending it to the Recycle Bin? I understand that the point of this is so I do not accidentally delete any unwanted files, but there are sensitive work files that sometimes I just need to delete and I don't want to forget to delete them out of the Recycle Bin. Thanks for your help.

Yes of course, you can delete a file completely without sending it to the Recycle Bin by simply following these steps,

  • Go to start >> right click on the Recycle bin >> properties >> select "Do not move the files to the Recycle Bin" >> ok
  • After this setting change, all the deleted files would not move to the Recycle Bin.

Furthermore, it is also possible to permanently delete the files separately through these steps,

  • Select the file >> press Shift & Del key at the same time >> confirm the deletion by selecting yes.

Best Regards!
