Title: Way to bulk delete Music files from Foobar and Hardrive at the same time?
Post by: ObamaBinBush on 2021-04-16 14:10:19
Example in Serato selecting multiple songs and Ctrl+Del deletes from Serato but doing Ctrl+Shift+Del deletes from Hardrive as well(puts them into recycle bin)

I tend to use Foobar a lot to organise and edit Tags so would like to be able to bulk delete files from my Hardrive from within it as well as navigating to specific location on Hardrive for each Tune using 'right click/navigate to containing folder 30 times is nonsense.
Help a Brother you wonderful people :)

Usually what I do is select files in foobar, right click, file operations, delete file.

Doh!!!!
I feel so stupid now lol.
It was right there all along in the right click menu 2 below the one i was using, it even has a Hotkey Ctrl+Del.
Thanks for making me look stupid :)

You can make the same shortcut key for that in foobar too at

File / Preferences / Keyboard Shortcuts

Yes it actually has Ctrl+Del listed on the Right Click menu already as the Shortcut so i don't even need to make one myself :)
Foobar is such an awesome program :)
I already use a great addon 'Masstagger' to make scripts to which i then add shortcuts too beyond whats even available as default and default has you covered for a whole lot from the off :)
Thanks for the help folks :)
