Add the ability to physically delete a file in Lightroom Develop module.
Currently you can only right-click images and Remove From collection: I think the ability to actually delete the file without getting to Library should be added.
This should ease the workflow for all the users.

Thanks

If you're in Develop and you're working on images in a collection, you're correct, the standard "delete" methods are just for removing the image from the collection.

If you want to permanently delete the current image from Lightroom & your drive, while you're in Develop and the collection, I believe the magic keyboard shortcut you're looking for is -
(On PC) Ctrl + Alt + Shift + Backspace
(On Mac) Command + Option + Shift + Backspace

Thanks, I knew about the shortcut, what I was thinking about was something s little more simple to use, like a contextual menu item.
Just as in the Folder view "Remove photo..."

I should have mentioned, that shortcut will bypass the normal confirmation prompt, so pay attention when you're using it.

If your working off a library folder in the develop, the contextual "Remove Photo..." will do what you want.

I beg your pardon, I am not sure I've understood you properly, would you please elaborate on this?
Thanks.

While in develop, there are also three different delete options if you look into the "Photo" menu on the main application menu bar.

Do you not see the three menu commands in the Photo menu?
