Windows 8 Recycle Bin Will Not Warn You When You Delete a File
Now that's an interesting point mentioned by Microsoft in the official announcement about improved file management in Windows 8:
Microsoft mentioned at the end of above mentioned announcement:
Finally, in addition to these big improvements, we've also done a thorough scrub and removed many of the confirmation dialogs that you've told us are annoying or feel redundant (i.e. "are you sure you want to move this file to the recycle bin?" or "are you sure you want to merge these folders?") to create a quieter, less distracting experience.
It means when you delete a file in Windows 8, you'll not get a confirmation dialog box and it'll directly go to the Recycle Bin.
What if you accidentally pressed the DEL key and there are many other deleted files already lying in Recycle Bin? You'll have to open Recycle Bin, look for the accidentally deleted file and restore it. It'll become too much annoying in this case.
That's not a good move by Microsoft. Recycle Bin has always have an option in its Settings to enable / disable confirmation dialog box, then what's the need to turn it off by default? If a user wants to disable confirmation, he can simply disable the option using Recycle Bin Settings?
I hope Microsoft will not remove the option from Recycle Bin Settings in Windows 8. What do you think of this move by Microsoft?
