Windows 8 is full of new features, graphics and a completely different UI from the previous versions of Windows. It changed the way people use their computers. One feature that Microsoft disabled from Windows 8 was the delete confirmation dialog box. If you have upgraded to Windows 8 then you would have noticed that when you delete a file it automatically goes to Recycle Bin, without asking a confirmation for the deletion. This fills up the Recycle Bin unnecessarily with accidentally deleted files.
But Microsoft did not remove the feature, it just disabled it and enabling the Windows 8 delete confirmation box is dead simple.
How to Enable/Disable the Delete Confirmation Box in Windows 8
- Go to your Desktop and right-click on the Recycle Bin icon.
- Select Properties.
- Now just tick/untick the “Display delete confirmation dialog” option and click on “Apply”.
