How do you use trash?

I cannot throw an image away

How are you trying to do it? Catalog or session? In a session, if I am on an image in an album, "deleting" just removes it from the album. And the same goes for an image in an album in a catalog. If I go to the actual folder the images resides in (such as the Selects folder in a session) and use delete, the image is put in the session trash, and it is physically moved on disk to the trash folder. Similarly in a catalog, it is moved to the catalog trash, but it stays in the same place on disk, with Capture One just listing it as being in trash, not listing it as being in the physical folder (as the catalog trash is not a physical folder). In either case, you can empty the catalog or session trash and then the images in there are gone for good.

I generally empty my session trash folders from time to time when a little time has passed and I am confident enough that it wasn't a mistake to put things in there.

I am unable to delete images from disc. No keyboard shortcut or other method works. I am using catalog and Windows 10.I have to go through a 3 step process to delete from disc. Very time consuming and annoying. Any ideas?

I find your description confusing. You are apparently not able to delete from disk at all. Even so, you can delete in three steps? Which is it?
