When you want to delete a file on a Mac, you typically have to send it to the trash can first. That’s a bit annoying when you know you’ll never need it again. Blogger Jack John Brown shows off how to add a menu to delete a file permanently using an Automator script.
The process requires you to make a pretty easy Automator script, and when you’re done, you’ll be able to right-click or keyboard shortcut on any file and select an option to delete it permanently. This skips the trash and gets rid of it forever so you don’t have to worry about it. Head over to Jack John Brown’s blog for the full guide.
