Part VI: Appendices > Deleting Files and Folders

Deleting Files and Folders

Deleting files and folders permanently removes them from your system. Like copying a file, there are a number of ways to delete one:

  • Drag to Dock Trash— Dragging an icon from a Finder window into the Dock’s Trash is one of the most obvious and easy ways to get rid of a file.

  • Finder toolbar— A Delete shortcut can be added to the Finder’s toolbar (refer to Hour 2, “Using the Finder and the Dock,” for details). Any items selected can be quickly moved to the Trash by clicking the Delete shortcut. Delete is not one of the default toolbar icons.
