Hello, Something has been bugging me for a while now. I haven't found a way to delete a file without using the trash can. I can do it with the command line, but this is cumbersome sometimes. In Windows, I could select a file and hold down control while I hit delete and it would bypass the recycle bin and be deleted. Is there a way do this with Mac OS X? I find this problem most annoying especially when dealing with removable drives (like USB drives) as the files are left on the drive. The only way to remove them is to use the command line or empty my entire trash can. Sometimes I'm not ready to empty the trash quite yet. Speaking of which, in windows, you could go into the recycle bin and "empty" or delete specific selected files. It seems in Mac OS X, you can only empty the entire trash can to permanently delete a file without using the command line. Am I missing something? Please help. Is there a way to delete by bypassing the trash can?
