Windows 7: Missing One-Click "Red X" File Delete

Missing One-Click "Red X" File Delete

One of the things I really missed when migrating from WinXP to Windows 7 was the Windows Explorer "Red X" file delete icon. After so many years of having a single-click delete button I really miss it. Is there any way to get it back under Windows 7?

Hello Dick, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can add a Delete button to the Windows Explorer toolbar to use if you like.

Windows Explorer - Add or Remove Delete Button

Hope this helps,

That worked perfectly. I read where other folks insisted on deleting the keys, but your instructions to just change ownership worked fine. Now if I could only change the button to the big red X icon!

Thanks for the help.

You're most welcome Dick. Yeah, that would be nice to add a icon to the button as well.
