Introduction

We all have our favourite or useful tips to share. Please list yours here.


Restore DELETE option to Dolphin Right Click menu

By default KDE 4.8.3 shows only Move to trash in its Right Click menu. If you want it to show "Delete" too, then :

   Dolphin Menu > Settings > Configure Dolphin > General > Context Menu > Tick on Show 'Delete' command. 


Old style file operations progress indicator

Newer versions of KDE beyond 4.x.x series use the system tray for notification. This applies to file operations as well. However if you wish to have the old style of pop-up notifications, please follow this method :

   Right-Click on the System Tray Notifications icon.
   Select Notification Settings.
   Uncheck File transfers and other jobs checkbox.
   REBOOT.
