By­pass the Trash when delet­ing files

Mac Format - - MAKE MORE OF EL CAPITAN & iOS 9 -

Want to per­ma­nently get rid of files with­out putting them in the Trash and emp­ty­ing the whole thing? Se­lect the things you want to delete, hold å and then pick File > Delete Im­me­di­ately, or sim­ply press å+ç+∫ to re­move the se­lec­tion. How­ever the lat­ter can be a lit­tle too easy to trig­ger, so if you tend to mix up shortcuts you might want to as­sign a key com­bi­na­tion you’re less likely to press by accident. To do that, go to Sys­tem Pref­er­ences > Key­board > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts, click the + but­ton, pick Finder, en­ter ‘Delete Im­me­di­ately…’ (use å+; to type the el­lip­sis) and as­sign a more com­plex combo.
