    Hello pgarden, :)

    If you like, you can click on Delete instead when you right click on the document to also have it sent to the Recycle Bin.

    Thank you for the quick reply and yes it does work. I didn't know that if you click Delete it goes to the recycle bin and can be restored again if you change your mind.

    You're most welcome.

    It all depends on if you set the Recycle Bin to automatically permanently delete or not.

    Also, if you hold down the shift key while deleting it does not go to the Recycle bin, it gets permanently deleted.
