[Fixed]RC3: shift-delete = bypass recycle bin

Post by scratch » Fri May 27, 2005 9:30 am

could you make a hotkey of shift-delete, bypassing the recycle bin? this is a very handy shortcut used in windows explorer as well as many other file managers and image viewers. it's pretty standard on the windows platform.

yes, but it does NOT bypass :wink: the recycle bin !

the delete file is send to the bin (just as pressing delete), but not directly delete from the hard disk.[/u]

Hmm, you're right.
I can't believe I didn't notice this before, I'm too used to it working perfectly in xplorer2 lite I guess.

You can in the Options > General , disable the option "Delete to recicle bin", and activate te option to "Confirm file delete".

:P

Read again. That's not what he wants. Your suggestion would delete all files completely everytime. He wants to be able to choose for each file individually if it's going to be moved to the trashcan or deleted permanently.

Yes currently SHIFT+delete don't ask you, but move the file in recycle bin.
Without recycle bin is really dangerous, but for power users....????

yes, for power users. shift-delete should ask you "do you want to delete the file permanently?" just like in explorer.

i use it in view/edit (the mode i spend probably 90% of my xnview time in). just tried in browse and it works there. delete works in view/edit though, so why not shift-delete?

(It works in the browser, therefore moved to "Solved" forum...)

Add it also to view/edit mode is a good idea, maybe even a minor bug...
