The following tutorial explains how to automatically delete files instead of moving them to the recycle bin in Windows Vista. "Remove files immediately when deleted" bypassing the recycle bin. In addition you can remove the recycle bin icon from the desktop. I personally prefer this method as I don't like to go through a two step process to remove files from my system.
How to automatically delete files from Windows Vista:
- From the Windows Vista Desktop, right click theRecycle Bin and select Properties
- Check the box that says: Do not move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove immediately upon deletion and click apply
How to remove the Recycle bin icon from the Desktop:
- From the Desktop, simply right click theRecycle Bin and select the option to Delete
