Windows 8.1 - Delete files without moving them to the Recycle Bin


Windows gives you the ability to delete files without moving them to the Recycle Bin.
To enable this option:

  • Right-click on the Recycle Bin > Properties.
  • Select "Don't move files to the Recycle Bin, Remove files immediately when deleted".

  • Click on Apply.

Once this option is enabled, you won't be able to restore your deleted files (unless you use a third party software).
