    How do I do this. Later Notes seem to have a "trash" option in the pull-down menu of Gallery which gives an "empty" option, but my Gallery has nothing. Please advise. Thanks in advance. Frank

    Not all apps have a Trash/Recycle bin. If you don't see the option, then it's not available, and anything you delete is therefore gone immediately.

    When you open your stock gallery tap on the 3 dots for more menus and should see trash folder

    I assumed you would be familiar with the Note 4 as I thought I had placed this question in the Note 4 section of this forum. Thanks for your reply, Mustang7757, but I have done exactly what you have suggested and have no "trash" shown in the pull-down. Could you possibly explain this? I am using the stock Gallery app.

    I can't explain why yours doesn't have it as it's been very long time since I had the Note 4 and can't look up it's settings in gallery, my thinking is it's on old Andriod version and not supported anymore.

    I don't have a Note 4, nor do I personally own many of the phones that have subforums on this forum. That doesn't mean that I can't make some comments or suggestions. What I mentioned previously is still valid, no matter what phone you might have -- if you don't see a Trash or Recycle option, then it's not available. As mustang7757 mentioned, it may very well have to do with how outdated the phone is.

    I understand. The phone is outdated although I think there are still quite a few around. Archaic though it is, I have no idea why they would omit such a capability. I am trying to free up space and have just moved some photos and videos to external storage. I'd be surprised if these files, "deleted" from internal storage, would be permanently deleted at the same time. Is it possible the phone is *that* primitive? Also no evidence percentage of internal storage has dropped.

    Recycle Bin is something Samsung added in Android Pie (so it's not something they took away in your phone -- it's a new feature they added in later versions of the UI and Gallery app): https://www.sammobile.com/2018/11/22...-gallery-trash

    Older Android phones didn't have a Recycle Bin -- that was really something of a MacOS/Windows idea that was added later to Android. Remember, iPhones don't have a Recycle Bin either.
