Working with the Trash

Today’s computer hard disks—and even other removable types of disks—store many more files than was possible on disks even a few years ago. A Zip disk, for example, has ten times the space of the hard disks first offered in computers in the late 1980s. That being said, you should get rid of files and folders that you no longer need in order to keep your Home folder well organized. As in previous Mac operating systems, Mac OS X Version 10.2 includes the Trash, which is used to delete files temporarily or permanently.

Trashing a File or Folder

When you no longer need a document in your office, you wad it up and drop it in the round file. Throwing a whole folder into the wastebasket removes both the folder and its contents from your desk or filing cabinet. Similarly, dropping a computer file or folder from a Finder window into the Trash on the Dock removes it from action.
