    How to turn off delete confirmation

    Hi,
    I want the windows to turn off the alert or confirmation for recycle bean.
    I don't want windows to ask me the confirmation about whether to delete the file or not.
    How can I turn off this option.

    • Right-click on the Recycle Bin on the Desktop, and select Properties from the menu.
    • Under the Global Tab, select Use one setting for all drives.
    • Turn on the option labeled Do not move files to the recycle bin. (For some unknown reason, decreasing the Maximum size of Recycle Bin to 0% doesn't do the trick.)
    • Notice that the option labeled Display delete confirmation dialog is grayed out at this point, meaning that there is no way to truly delete files in Windows without a confirmation dialog.
    • Also, if you have files waiting in the Recycle Bin, they will not be deleted until you do so manually, even after changing this setting.
