How do I empty my Trash
Finder Menu-> Empty Trash
Ctrl+click on Trash-> Empty Trash
Thanks I'll try that right now.
Ok I clicked the finder menu, Clicked Empty Trash. But It did not work. It just said 209 items remaining. And I still see everything in my Trash folder.
What Mac OS are you using? If your using Os X you may need to repair permissions.
repair permissions? It has never worked!!!! . I have TONS of stuff in there
hold down the option key when you empty the trash from the menu, chances are you have a locked file, folder or multiple locked items and those will not allow the trash to be emptied....
so either unlocck everything *pain* or hold down the option key
If that stuff doesn't work, then you can always use the Terminal. If you're logged in with an admin account, then open Terminal (in your /Applications/Utilities folder) and paste in this line:
sudo rm -r ~/.Trash/*.*
Then give it your password when it asks for it.
Just be careful...even minor typos in Terminal can have very harsh results.
[edited to add -r to that Terminal command]
