Ubuntu - How to add the Delete command to the context menu
Learn how to delete files directly, without first sending them to the Trash folder of Ubuntu. You simply have to add a Delete command to the context menu (right-click on file or folder > Delete).
NB: the Delete command permanently deletes the files from your hard drive.
The procedure is as follows:
From your desktop, click on Files > Home.
Move your mouse cursor to the top of your screen and click on the Edit Menu > Preferences.
This opens the File Management Preferences window
Go to the "Behaviour" tab > Trash.
Tick the "Include a Delete command that bypasses Trash" checkbox.
