Windows

A much faster, bare metal approach to deleting large and complex folders in Windows is via the command line. Of course, repeatedly having to navigate directories while executing commands via a terminal quickly becomes a tedious experience. In this post, I will walk through the process of creating a simple batch file and wiring it up to a handy right-click context menu from Windows Explorer to delete sophisticated directories in a hurry and without interruption.

Small tip (from 2015, so I'm a tad late), explained very well, that a lot of people could benefit from.

SHIFT+Del (it omits wastebin and it's fast)

However, delete files (directories) by moving every file one by one to the wastebin is not so smart... what about it Microsoft?
