    Ok I Try To Explain

    When You Right Click On A File or Folder it shows you some commands like delete etc, now when you delete the file it goes to Recycle bin and if you want to delete the file without sending it to the recycle bin then you press shift then delete it, now my question is if we can add a entry below the delete command like Shred (Shift + Delete) then we dont have to press shift button on our keyboard the file will directly deleted from computer without recycle bin

    For one thing .. you can enable "Shift + Delete" at all times

    1- Click Start menu > Run > and type “gpedit.msc� (without quotes ) to run Group Policy
    2- Go to following : User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer
    3- In right panel, find “Do not move deleted files to the Recycle Bin�, right click and select Properties, in dialog box select Enable check box

    This will completely delete files at all times.

    If you still want both Delete and Shift+Delete options in right click menu then save the following in a text file and name it as "<anything>.reg"

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\Erase File]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\Erase File\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c \"del \"%1\"\""
    
    Double click on .reg file and merge.
    It wont have the "Erase" command just above "delete" .. but it works .. it opens a command window to execute the "del" command and then the window closes.
