Bug Description

Enhance the functionality of the Places form.

Add delete to the right mouse click menu.
When you are cleaning up a directory deleting some files renaming others and other actions.
It would be more convenient if I did not have to use the mouse and the keyboard to delete a file.

Thanks for the reply.

I usually ignore updates for a while as they are as likely to break
things as fix things.

I'll do an update and if I still don't see it I'll complain.

not sure updates should change anything but the description is not clear on where you right click...

Running Gnome desk top ( I think).
Top left menu line reads: Ubuntu Logo Applications Places System

Execute Places

Navigate to a directory.

Click on a file (can just right, but old habits)

Right mouse button, gives sub menu
    Open
    Cut
    Copy
    Make Link
    Rename....
    ..... half a dozen others
    Properties

I'm suggesting add Delete to this menu, I claim after copy.
Do not know what others do to clean house but this is my primary tool to
delete file.

Hello Karl
You don't have the move to Trash entry on your menu ?
Can you please attach here, using the button below 'Add attachment or patch' a screenshot ?
Thanks
