Deleting items from a Windows computer makes use of the Recycle Bin. On a Mac computer it is called the Trash Can. In this movie, you will know how to delete items temporarily by placing them in the Trash Can, and you will also know how to retrieve deleted items or permanently delete items by using both Empty and Secure Empty Trash commands.
- [Voiceover] When you need to delete files,…maybe folders, shortcuts, et cetera,…on a Windows computer you work with the Recycle Bin.…That's where items are stored temporarily…until you permanently delete them…by emptying the Recycle Bin,…or get them back by retrieving them…from the Recycle Bin.…Well here on a Mac computer, it's called the Trash Can.…It works much the same way…so you won't have a difficult time…transitioning to the Trash Can,…although there is one added feature…we're going to explore in this movie.…And we're gonna start by opening up…our Exercise Files.…
Double click that folder…and double click the Chapter3 subfolder.…There's a list of files and maybe there's some files here…we no longer need.…We can get them into the Trash Can…using a couple of different methods.…One option is to simply drag it there right from the window.…Like FlowerYellow, we click, drag it down to the dock.…When we see the Trash Can, release,…and it's moved into the Trash Can.…If the Trash Can was empty,…it doesn't appear that way any longer…
