I really wanted to write this as a comment but I don't have enough rep, mods and others be merciful

In ubuntu the concept of "delete" from windows is "Move to Trash" as far as the desktop is concerned.

This can also be achieved by just highlighting the item you want gone and hitting the delete key. If you want it permanently gone and not hang around in the trash folder use Shift + delete.

Is the Move To Trash not even in the options list? what happens when you hit the delete key ?
