How to make the 'delete' key to move selected files to Trash

In Apple, you need to use CMD+Del key combin to move files to Trash. if you are from the Windows background, this is not nice as when you use one hand to select the files using the mouse, you just want to press one single key to get rid of the files.

Here is what you can do:

1. get ‘Spark’ from http://www.shadowlab.org/Software/spark.php
It’s a free software so don’t forget to donate.

2. Install Spark and run it as demon so that it can intercept your keys and do the function.

3. Run Spark and click ‘Preferences’ from menu,
change
Allow "one key" shortcut for
from “Function keys only” to “All keys”

4. Double click on Apple Script,
press “delete” key for the short cut, give it a name, such as “Trash selected files". In the Apple script box, input the follow the script

Code:

tell application "Finder"
  if frontmost is false then return
  set selectedList to the selection
  set deleteList to {}
  repeat with thisItem in selectedList
    if class of thisItem is not disk then
      set end of deleteList to thisItem
    end if
  end repeat
  delete deleteList
end tell

5. If you want to permanently delete selected files, which I don’t recommend, use the following Apple script

Code:

tell application "Finder"
  if frontmost is false then return
  set selectedList to the selection
  set deleteList to {}
  repeat with thisItem in selectedList
    if class of thisItem is not disk then
      set end of deleteList to thisItem
    end if
  end repeat
  delete deleteList
  ignoring application responses -- because secure deletes can take a while
    empty trash with security
  end ignoring
end tell

How to move an off-screen window back to your desktop in Windows 7

In previous version of Windows before Windows 7, you can just right click on the application Icon on your taskbar, select ‘move’, and then use your keyboard’s left/right/up/downdown arrow key to move your window to the centre of your desktop.

Starting from Windows 7, right click doesn’t bring those option up any more. You have to press shift and then right click on the application icon, select ‘move’, and use arrow keys to bring the window back.
