I found out today, much to my dismay, that pressing command+delete while in the trash does quite the opposite from what I intended. While attempting to selectively empty files from the trash, I looked for a context menu that would allow me to permanently remove files individually. I could only find the 'empty trash' option which would dispose of all my files indeterminately. So then I started experimenting with key combos and intuitively tried command+delete. Pressing it made a nice trash sound and removed the file from the list. I sent an instant message to a friend (to who I had just moments before finished lamenting mac for not allowing me to delete only the files I wanted) exclaiming how I figured out how to do it after all. Then I quickly began 'command-deleting' all the files that I wanted. WOW! Man was I pissed. After going through most of my list I realized that this key combo was actually RESTORING the files to their original location. I'm still pissed. I now have files scattered all over my system that I intended to have completely removed. Command+Z wouldn't even bring them back into trash. Did anyone know about this? Does anyone know how I can delete files how I intended? I guess I can see the two schools of thought where 'deleting' a file from the trash could mean putting it back or deleting it permanently, but really? And to complicate it, the accompanying sound effect is the same delete sound. Couldn't it have at least been an anti-delete sound?
