Permanently delete files in one go using the stock My Files app

It has been revealed that the latest version (15.0.04.5) of the My Files app brings the hidden menu called MyFiles Labs. You can find the ‘Permanently Delete Option' setting in that section. Activating it enables an extra option in the pop-up menu when you delete files using the My Files app. When you select it, the file will be deleted permanently from your phone, and you don't have to go to the Recycle Bin section to delete it permanently.

To activate the MyFiles Labs section, open the My Files app on your Galaxy device, navigate to Settings » About My Files, and tap on the My Files text multiple times until a dialog appears that says “MyFiles Labs has been enabled.” Once enabled, you can return to Settings » MyFiles Labs and enable the Permanently Delete Option toggle.
this feature is only available in version 15.0.04.5 of the My Files
