If, in Windows, you want to stop your Recycle Bin from taking up storage on your drive, or stop anyone from recovering your erased data, there is a fast and easy way to bypass your Recycle Bin and go straight to permanent delete with unwanted files / folders. Here’s how:

– Click on the file / folder you want to delete.
– Hold down Shift before you hit the Delete key.
– Hit Delete.
– You will still get the confirmation question.
