Bypass Recycle Bin


It may sometimes get annoying using Shift+Delete to delete files or folders permanently. If you press the delete button, it instead goes into the recycle bin. And to delete it permanently, you need to open the recycle bin and delete it from there also.

Is there any shortcut method?
When we know we want ot delete a file or folder permanently, why use such a combination every time we delete?

Now it's time to shorten that key combination. Here, I will teach you how to delete any file or folder using just the delete button bypassing the recycle bin. U can delete files or folders permanently without placing them on the Recycle Bin using the delete button (no key combination- Shift+Delete required).

How to do it
  1. Click on start menu & click run.
  2. Now type gpedit.msc in the run dialog box.
  3. Now you should see the Group Policy editor window in a few moments.
  4. In the group policy editor, navigate to: User Configuration\Administrative templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer
  5. Now in the right pane, double click "Do not move deleted files to Recycle Bin".
  6. Now in the Do not move deleted files to Recycle Bin properties dialog box, go to setting tab & click enabled.
  7. Click Apply.
  8. Click OK.


After following the above mentioned steps, close the group policy editor. Now delete one of your unnecessary folders using delete button & in the confirmation dialog box, click OK.

Now check the recycle bin. You won't find that folder in the recycle bin. So, that means, you've succeeded to bypass recycle bin. The results are right in front of you! Enjoy!
