I often need to delete old podcasts to make room on my hard drive. My preferred way to delete an item is to highlight it, then hit the delete key. iTunes then displays a dialog similar to this one:
Since the “Keep File” button is highlighted, it is the default action if the user hits the return (also known as the enter) key. Instead of hitting the Cancel button to abort the operation, the user can hit the esc key. What about the “Move to Trash” button? After a few trials, I found it: just hit the m key and iTunes will move the item to trash. I have tested this shortcut on the Mac OS X environment, so I am not sure if it works in Windows.
If you know any useful shortcut keys that are off the beaten path, please share them via the comment section. Thank you.
