Pretrash explained

May 24, 2012 - Karin Elton
A co-worker who monkeys with our photos in the newsroom recently explained what the folder on the desktop labeled “pretrash” was for. Every once in a while he tries to trash a photo and he gets an error message. He then simply drags the photo to the pretrash folder and deletes it later.

I told him, “so that what’s what my husband does at home when he makes microwave popcorn. The plastic outside wrap gets placed — not straight into the trash can, but onto the counter and left there.”

I am always so annoyed when I see that. Why can’t he throw it in the garbage? But now I see my husband is simply placing the item in pretrash. That is really good to know and I am not quite so irritated by it. But now I have to get him to take it from pretrash and execute the final deletion of the item.
