This very brief tutorial will show you how to add a “Delete” button (as well as Cut, Copy, Paste & others) to the Windows Explorer Toolbar.
- By default, Windows 7 does not include a Delete button in Windows Explorer.
- To remedy this, download the small utility CustomExplorerToolbar. Note: the download link is towards the bottom of the CustomExplorerToolbar page – just scroll down.
Open the .zip file and extract the files to any folder on your drive. I used my Downloads folder. Double-click CustomExplorerToolbar.exe.
- Place a check next to each feature you want to add to your Windows Explorer Toolbar. Then place a check in all of the Folder Types: fields. Finally, click the Do It! button.
As illustrated in the screenshot below, I added the features Copy, Delete, Cut & Paste.
- If you have a Windows Explorer window open, close and re-open it. Now your Toolbar includes a Delete button!
- You can now delete CustomExplorerToolbar and its associated files, but it’s a good idea to keep it around should you ever decide to undo any of these changes.
