Option to delete items from disk inside the download panel



  • It would be great if you could add the ability to "remove from list & delete from disk" so you don't have to open your download folder if you want to delete the item from the disk. If you click on delete, it only removes it from the list.
    Similar to how it works in Chrono Download manager. I only use the extension for that single feature.



  • 100% agree. I came here just to post the same feature request.

    Only one small step to right-click, open the download folder and delete the file.



  • @pesala Sorry, I thought that this was a place for people to post and vote for feature requests, not a place to have them criticized by moderators. We obviously know how this currently works, that's why we are suggesting this change. Clearly this is something people want if there are extensions that others use for this functionality.

    Your suggested way requires user to:

    • Right click to open File Explorer
    • Delete file in File Explorer
    • Close File Explorer
    • Return to Vivaldi
    • Right click on the downloaded item
    • Select Remove

    Where, what is suggested would require:

    • Right click on downloaded item
    • Select Remove and Delete

    @x-15a2 It is a workaround, not a criticism.

    It is not as many steps as you think it is.

    1. Right-click
    2. Show in file manager
    3. Delete
    4. Close file manager
    5. Click the (-) button.


  • @pesala thanks for eliminating 1 click.



  • @pesala
    my download folder is quite large and thus it takes some time until everything shows up and is deletable.
    It'd be a neat feature and would take away the hassle of opening the Download folder every single time.
    It should also don't be that big of a deal to implement this feature.

    There's no way for us to know without inside knowledge.

    There's a very long list of Feature Requests, which is why I often mention workarounds that users can try while they're waiting for their requested feature.
