    Due to the number of attachments that people have to go through each day,
    there should be a "close and delete" button included in Office apps, allowing
    users a one-button solution to disposing of files once they are done viewing
    the content, instead of closing it and then having to go locate it on the
    desktop or other file and delete it.

    I can see it now! Where oh where did my little file go when I clicked the
    close button on the ribbon. You know the one right next to the save one.
    No I didn't know that was what the button was for as the first word in the
    popup was close.....

    Take the time to do correct computing. Don't save files to the desktop but
    to a "view and then anything left at the end of the day gets deleted
    folder." Anything you want to save is placed into another folder that is
    backed up at the end of the day. That way you shouldn't delete really
    important files and even should you do it you have one last chance from
    recovering from the recycle bin.

    The system already does that automatically, UNLESS the USER starts
    saving attachments willy nilly all over the place. It's the USERS
    responsiblity to manage the files they wish to save, so if you don't
    want them saved, DON'T save them! Again, DON'T SAVE the files if you
    don't want to delete them.
