rectangle. Keep the circle selected.

fixed to the right of the desktop. Select Trim from the drop down.
"Source Object" is selected by default, if not select
it leaving other option blank.
5. Click Trim. You will get "Trim" cursor
to select the object you want to trim by the already selected object.
6. Click the cursor on the rectangle.

portion of the rectangle is cut in the shape of the overlapped part
of the circle. And the source object that is the initially selected
circle will also remain intact.
