How can I add the Trash icon and empty Trash from the sidebar of Finder.app in Mac OS X Lion ?
I dont have a problem to add them in the list of favorites too, but the Trash icon is not draggable.
First, open the trash can by clicking on it in the Dock.
To empty the trash from the sidebar, open Automator and create an application. As the sole action in the application, select "Run AppleScript" and use this AppleScript:
Save the application as "Empty Trash", and drag it to the sidebar.
