Disable The Delete Confirmation Dialog Box in Windows 7 or Vista
I f you are cleaning your computer and every time you delete a file, Windows asks you “Are you sure you want to move this file to the Recycle Bin?”
This is typically a good thing, to prevent you from deleting files by accident, but if you are trying to do some cleanup and need to delete a lot of files, you might not want to be prompted every single time you delete something.
There’s a simple way to turn it off, although I’d recommend to leave it on the majority of the time.
- Just right-click on your Recycle Bin and choose Properties from the menu.
- Now you’ll see the Trash Properties dialog, and notice the Display delete confirmation dialog at the bottom.
- uncheck the box, and close the dialog. No more confirmations!
Note: I recommend that you turn it back on when you are done cleaning up your computer, but Personally I leave it off and in case I delete something I can always go back to the Recycle Bin and restore it.
