Windows 7: Delete icon in folders?

Delete icon in folders?

Is there a way to enable the delete icon in folders view? The red X that was available in Vista and XP. I cannot seem to be able to find a way to customize the toolbars to enable this useful feature.

Hi BCrose,

Sorry this never got answered... but here it is, better late than never I hope:

Add a Delete Button to the Windows 7 Explorer Toolbar - Win7, Explorer toolbar, FolderTypes, command bar, Delete button, RegEdit, registry, 5c4f28b5, Dan Rollins

As with any regedit, be sure to backup all your data first :P Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Cheers,
