Way to skip the Trash and Delete files on Mac: Guide

Delete files on MacThe constant method of removing a file on a Mac is to simply drag it to the trash. Or right-tap on the file & choose to Move to Trash. And next when you guys accidentally head to the Trash folder & actualize how many files you have stored there. You guys go ahead & vacant the trash. In this guide, you will learn the way to skip the Trash and Delete files on Mac.

However, with OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Apple launched the way to bypass the trash when removing a file — Remove Immediately. But is Delete Immediately any faster than Move to Trash? So let’s have a glance.

Way to skip the Trash and Delete files on Mac: Guide

Two ways are there to access the Delete Immediately command. However, with your file or files highlighted, you guys are also able to use the keyboard shortcut Option-Command-Delete or head to the Finder’s File menu. And hold down the Option key, that altering the Move to Trash option in order to Delete instantly. Though in either case, a dialog window will also appear & asking you to make sure your intention to remove the file. It is this second confirmation step that keeps me from using the Delete Immediately.

In order to move a file to the trash, you guys are also able to drag it to the trash. You have to right-click on the file & choose Move to Trash or utilize the keyboard shortcut Command-Delete.

Though guys then empty the trash, you guys are also able to right-click on the trash can. Choose the Empty Trash or use the keyboard shortcut Command-Shift-Delete. In either case, you guys will then have to make sure your intention to empty the trash.

Two ways are there, though, in order to skip the empty trash confirmation step. However, the keyboard shortcut Command-Option-Shift-Delete also empties the trash. Whilst bypassing the making sure dialog window. Whether that four-button keyboard shortcut is too cumbersome or too handy to remember. You guys are also able to alter a setting in Finder’s preferences in order to kill the empty trash confirmation.


Similarly, just from the Finder menu option in the menu bar, select the Preferences. On the Advanced tab, you should uncheck the box for Show caution before emptying the Trash.

Here you guys will also be able to utilize the standard three-button keyboard shortcut in order to vacant the trash without needing to jump via the extra hoop of making sure your intention.

And the keyboard shortcut still demands three buttons, though that also makes it unlikely that you will fortuitously engage the command.

That is my current go-to for trashing files: Command-Delete simply to send the files to the trash & Command-Shift-Delete to empty the trash.
