The Secret to Deleting Files Permanently in Windows!

Want a file to be deleted permanently?

Normally, when you delete a file in Windows, the file is moved to the Recycle Bin.

This is because files in the Recycle Bin can be Restored if they were sent there by mistake.

But you also can delete a file that doesn't go to the Recycle Bin.

It's just deleted.

There's a cool tip for that.

Here's how to do it:

  • Locate the file you want to delete.
  • Select the file by clicking on it once.
  • Hold down the Shift key on your keyboard.
  • While still holding down the Shift key, press the Delete key on your keyboard.
  • A prompt will appear asking if you are sure you want to permanently delete the file.
Delete Confirmation
  • Click Yes to confirm the deletion.

Note: When you use Shift + Delete to delete a file, it bypasses the Recycle Bin, meaning the file will not be recoverable. 

So, use this method with caution.
