Sorry for reviving this old thread, but I would rather use this one than create a duplicate. I have been a ThumbsPlus user for many years and am really missing this feature. I have waited for XnView to get it for years. Many people ask for it, why was it not implemented? It seems that XnView and IrfanView developers share the same opinion (forgive my irony, I just mean to nag a bit not to be disrespectful): "Our users want it but we do not care because we know better what is good for them." What is the problem with making it optional via global settings and offering it to power users? Something like [Del], maybe a little pop-up dialog (also optional!) asking if the user really wants to delete (Y or N for yes/no), then delete. And even if the user was stupid enough to delete it unintentionally he still can go to the recycle bin (also optional if Shift-Del was pressed in order to delete without recycle bin).
