How to delete music files using Winamp?

I have been using Winamp for almost a decade now. It has always been my favorite although I think Windows Media Player is just as fine. I would like to figure out a way to delete a song from the hard drive while you are playing a reproduction selection. That would be great because I usually don´t like a lot of songs and would like to figure out a way of getting rid of them while playing music.

A reproduction selection?

If u load all the music into the ML, find the track in the tracks pane, right click it, and click remove from hard drive.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

Hi tonyshaw,

You don't have to load all your music into the Media Library (ML). You can also use the context menu commands in the Playlist Editor (PE).

Along the bottom left side of the PE are command buttons. Right-click on the one second from the left. You should see 4 command choices. Point to the last one (Remove...) and you should see 3 more choices. Click on "Physically remove selected file(s)" to delete the highlighted (selected) file or files in the PE.

For safety, you can enable the Winamp General Preferences option to "Recycle permanently deleted files". This puts them in the Windows Recycle Bin, then they can be easily recovered if need be.
