Empty Trash keyboard shortcut…

Post by ajmoo »

Heya!

Forgive me if this has been answered already, but I've tried a few searches and haven't found what I am looking for. I have SS 2.5 set up with Mac OS 9.0.4 and everything is wonderful. I'm just going a little crazy trying to figure out why my "Empty Trash…" menu item in the Finder doesn't have the keyboard shortcut "cmd+shift+del" attached to it! Was this introduced in a later version of Mac OS 9? Does SS disable this shortcut? It's driving me nuts! I can send files to the trash through the keyboard no problem, I just can't empty trash from the keyboard.

I really don't want to install QuicKeys just for this one thing…

Thank you in advance :)

SheepShaver does not change the menus in the guest OS. I do not know in which Mac OS or even Mac OS X version an Empty Trash shortcut was introduced, but it was certainly not available yet in Mac OS 9.0.4.
