A few months back when Windows 8 was under development and no testing build of Windows 8 was released to public, we told you that Microsoft is going to disable the delete confirmation dialog box in Windows 8:
In previous Windows versions, whenever you delete a file or folder, Windows asks for your confirmation before moving it to Recycle Bin but Microsoft has removed this confirmation dialog from Windows 8. In Windows 8 as soon as you press the "Delete" key, the selected file or folder is automatically deleted and moved to Recycle Bin without any confirmation prompt.
Many Windows 8 users like this move but there are some other people who are not liking this step. They want to bring back the delete confirmation dialog in Windows 8.
If you also want to re-enable delete confirmation dialog in Windows 8, following steps will help you:
1. Right-click on Recycle Bin icon on Desktop and select Properties.
2. Now enable "Display delete confirmation dialog" option and apply the changes.
3. That's it. It'll re-enable the confirmation dialog box and now Windows will always ask for your confirmation before moving a file or folder to Recycle Bin.
Simple, isn't it? So do you also want the confirmation dialog back or happy with no confirmation prompt?
