    Shift-Delete sends to recycle bin in win98se

    Hi all!

    I thought pressing the shift-delete will bypass the recycle bin and delete the file immediately without sending a deleted file to the recycle.

    Well, it doesn't work in my case. Furthermore, when I go to the recycle bin to empty it [clicking the right mouse button, empty recycle bin] it takes win98se about 20 seconds to delete it.

    Can anyone solve this for me? Thanks!

    Re: Shift-Delete sends to recycle bin in win98se

    It's been so long since I actively used Win98SE that I only have one installation remaining available and can't duplicate what's happening to you. However, I do remember the problem as a "sometimes bug" in Win98 where shift-delete would not work as advertised, but sometimes WOULD function correctly. I never did find an answer to what the problem might be unfortunately.

    Thanks for the reply!
    The files are different sizes. In fact it could be 10k, 100k or 1MB.
    I guess it might be attributed to a bug in win98se?!
