Set permanent delete on delete key

DEL key is used for delete and file and send it to the recycle bin in windows. Recycle is used to recover those files which have been deleted accidently. But most of the people do not use only delete button to delete files. They use shift+ del to delete the file permanent. For those people, it is better to set permanent delete on DEL key. Thus they do not need to press shift+ del key to delete a file permanently.

Follow these steps:

  • Click on start and then run.
  • Type gpedit.msc in the box and press enter. It will open a group policy window. 
  • Navigate to the User Configuration - >Administrative Templates
  •   >Windows Components>Windows Explorer
  • In the right side settings menu double click--Donot move deleted file to Recycle bin.
  • >click OK.

Now you have done. Delete the file anytime and it will not go to the recycle bin
