Although the Recycle Bin can be useful for time to time to recover a file deleted by accident, I personally hate clutter. When I delete something, I want it deleted. Additionally, the quick tip also helps free up hard drive space / system resources, thus increasing performance.
Note: If you also want to remove the icon from your desktop, check-out this article here
1. On your desktop, right-click the Recycle bin icon, left-click on Properties.
Once you’ve clicked Properties, a window will appear called Recycle Bin Properties. By default it will open to the Global menu tab. Changing the settings under this menu is recommended, however if you wish to configure each drive separately follow these same steps for each drive.
2. Check the empty white box with the dialog “Do not move files to the Recycle bin, Remove files immediately when deleted”.
Optional: Check the box with the dialog “Display delete confirmation dialog”. Click OK to save settings.
Click OK to save settings.
Once configured, when a file is deleted it will no longer be moved to the recycle bin; instead it will be permanently erased (from a consumer standpoint anyway…..).
