Windows 7: Bypass Recycle Bin - is there any right-click menu modifiers?

Bypass Recycle Bin - is there any right-click menu modifiers?

I am running a fully updated Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit. I am looking for a specific functionality. I want to have a selection always appear in my right-click menu when I click on a file giving me two options - one would be to delete the file as usual and the other would be to delete the file bypassing the recycle bin.

I know that holding the shift button changes the delete function to a permanent delete, bypassing the recycle bin. I know that you can change the functionality of the recycle bin by right-clicking on it. I know that you can modify policy to delete files permanently, bypassing the recycle bin. What I want is to have both options presented to me in the right-click menu at the same time without needing to hold down the shift button. Surely there is a app out there that adds this to the right-click menu.

Thank you for your time and courtesy!

You could use this thirdparty software
Download RightDelete 3.0 Free - A tool that will help you securely delete files. - Softpedia

Or download Sysinterals/Microsoft utility
SDelete
place it in the C:\Program files\

And run the following reg-file.
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\SDELETE\command]
@="\"C:\\Program files\\sdelete.exe\" \"%1\""
This will create a right click menu for all files.
When clicked on that menu files will be securely deleted (no way to restore).

Great stuff! That is just what I was looking for. Many thanks!

You are welcome.
Another idea would be to use similar reg file for Autohotkey script, which would do Shift+Delete thing for you.
