Creating a New Wastebasket

If you quit the Wastebasket window, you can create a new one by following these steps:

  1. Make sure the File Manager Tool General Defaults Properties Edit Menu item is "Delete".

    The "Delete" option is the default setting. See "Customizing Your File Manager" for information about setting the File Manager Tool Properties.

  2. In File Manager, select a folder or file that you want to put into the Wastebasket.

  3. Choose Delete from the Edit menu or the File Pane pop-up menu.

    A new Wastebasket is created to contain the files you selected.
