    Sorry for probably stupid question but I own MacBook Air one day only and there is question which comes to my mind today.
    I have few files in the trash and I want to empty (permanently delete) only one from it (without emptying the whole trash).
    How it can be done in the simplest way?

    Thanx a lot for the help guys :)

    You could make a new folder on the desktop and name it something like "Trash in the Future". Move items from the trash that you don't want to delete quite yet to this new folder and then empty the real trash.

    I don't think you can.

    I don't mean to veer off course from your question, but you really shouldn't put anything in the trash that you can't afford to lose at a moment's notice - if you do it will come back to bite you in the ass.

    Thanx for the blasting speed answers guys :)
    I'll do it with Knoodles's method.
    Although I wish there is no just something more obvious.
    Great thanx :)
