Request: when deleting items, offer to always delete torrent+files #10362
Usually, after some time, when I want to remove something I've downloaded, and make room for next things I want to download, I expect that removing it will remove not just the torrent, but also the files that were downloaded.
Currently, when I choose to delete, I see this:
And the checkbox is always unchecked.
But then choosing to delete is still of deletion of the torrents alone by default, and the only way to delete with the files is to use Shift+Delete key combination.
What I suggest:
Both of those cover each other.
Alternatively, it could at least be nice to assign the Delete key to actually delete the selected torrents with their files.

This seems to be the better option. It is clear to the user when looking at the settings. With option (1) you'd be left to wonder which behavior you set to be remembered.
I would say that the
Commands with potentially destructive behaviors requiring no confirmation are more suited for CLI interfaces/interfacing with daemons/scripting environments imo, since in these cases the user is paying more attention to what they're doing and ultimately nothing happens until
So I propose something like this:
It could also be nice to have a toolbar button for deletion of both torrents and files.
Another possible alternative to confirmation dialog is something that exists on Android and on some of Google's website: Snackbar. If you delete an email on Gmail (app or website), for example, it doesn't ask you if you are sure about it. It shows a temporary text saying that it's about to delete in a few seconds, and gives you final option to undo your action with an "undo" button next to this message.
We could also have a history for torrents, so deletion could be just of the files and not of the torrents (unless they are too old, of course, and then they would automatically be deleted or some other alternative, like storing the Magnet link).
