Files, the built-in file management app for Chrome OS, now has a trash folder. This is currently available in the Canary channel. Here is your first look.
The long awaited recycle bin
We started seeing mentions of a trash folder in the Chromium code a few months ago. A flag for this feature showed up in the Canary channel a few weeks ago.
It took some time, but the trash folder is finally here. Here is how it looks like:
The Trash folder sits within the My files directory, alongside Downloads and Play files.
Any file or folder that you delete is automatically added to the Trash folder. But wait. We already know how recycle bin works on other computers. Sorry, I forgot about that.
It might take a while for the Trash folder to reach the Stable channel. However, I hope they add an option to restore files from trash before the launch.
So, that’s that. A trash folder that we should have had ages ago.
