Create Empty Folder Option On Right Click

There's a number of methods to delete files (and folders) that are located In folders whilst working within the Windows environment, most of which send them to the Recycle Bin. This Is certainly convenient If you'd like to restore a file at a later time, but what If you wish to permanently delete the folder's contents with a click of the mouse? In this tutorial, I will demonstrate exactly how to do this with a few simple steps.

Do note that this applies to files & folders that are located Inside folders, and not the file Itself. Essentially, once this tweak Is applied, the Empty Folder option will be available via the right-click context menu and with a click of the mouse, everything contained In that folder, will be Instantly and permanently deleted. 

To achieve this, I will be using a neat little Registry tweak, namely In the form of a Registry file. All that's required on your part, Is to execute It, follow the prompts and within a couple of steps, the Empty Folder option will be Implemented and available every time you right-click a folder. I have provided the download links to the Registry files at the end of this article. So let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:
As per It's default state, here's what the context menu looks like when you right-click a folder. The Empty Folder option does not exist.

Step Two:
Now let's add the Empty Folder option to the context menu. Double-click on the Create Empty Folder.reg file, and hit Yes. This will add entries to the Windows Registry.

Step Three:
A message will be returned that the values have been successfully added to the Registry. Click OK to finalize the process.

Step Four:
Now right-click on any folder, and the Empty Folder option will be available. Let's put this to the test. I've selected the option with the Intention to (obviously) delete the folder's contents.

Step Five:
The Command Prompt will open, asking to confirm the operation. Simply Input Y and hit the Enter key on your keyboard.

Step Six:
As you can see, my Windows 10 Tips folder Is now empty, meaning It's contents have been Instantly and permanently deleted.

Last Step:
If you'd like to undo the changes and go back to It's original state, double-click the Delete Empty Folder.reg file, and then hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:
This Is a very useful feature to have at your disposal, but you must use It with care. In other words, be absolutely sure that you no longer need the folder's contents, and that you've actually selected the correct folder. Once you've used It, everything Is permanently deleted. Sure, there are recovery tools available, but they're not guaranteed to restore data.
