Delete Immediately

Irfanview has an option to allow immediate delete with just the delete key - I miss this enormously in FastPictureViewer and believe there should be a preference for same.

The delete command is Ctrl+Del [Del] in FastPictureViewer and it must be enabled from the program options, see Menu->Options->File Operations. The program will always ask for confirmation before permanently deleting a file but you can also set an option to move files to the Recycle Bin instead of deleting them, in which case the delete confirmation dialog can be disabled in Windows Explorer: right click the Recycle Bin on your desktop, click Properties then uncheck the "Display delete confirmation dialog" option. Hitting the Del key in FPV will delete the file without confirmation prompt, and Windows will ask you only once before permanently erasing the files when you empty the Recycle Bin.
