Hi bobbybro,

I assume the current 'click-point-click' function is too slow for you. After selecting the file(s) to be removed, right-click on the remove button at the bottom of the playlist editor or right-click on the selected file(s) in the media library. Then point to 'Remove...' in the context menu that pops up and left-click on the 'Physically remove selected file(s)' option. You may also want to disable the WA general preference to 'Recycle permanently deleted files'.

In the meantime (while waiting for your wish to be granted), Windows Explorer does have a hot-key combination for deleting selected file(s) that also bypasses the recycle bin.

my 'playlist file remover' plug-in does provide the hotkey needed to delete the current song as is generally one of the recommended ways for doing it over the last 8 years. just have to make sure that the options on the first page of the plug-ins preferences is unchecked to not delete all files once they have been played.

Hi DrO,

Should have figured you had this covered for those who value speed (and/or mouse alternatives) when interacting with WA. IMO, your plug-in site should be highlighted on the main WA website.

playlist file remover was one of the few plug-ins i ever submitted to the site, but since it's back to the age old way of the plug-in / skins part of the site being buggered again, i'll most likely never submit anything to it.

I understand how you feel, but it's a shame that new users (and some older users) are left to find out about your very useful plug-ins on their own.
