    Word Deletion Confirmation (Word2k, Win2k SP2)

    How do I turn off deletion confirmation in Word. User deletes words or highlighted selections and Word confirms their deletion prior to deleting.

    It sounds like they have turned on Navigation keys for WordPerfect. Go to Tools > Options > General, and see if the last item is checked. If so, uncheck it.

    Hope this helps.

    You should also uncheck any other WordPerfect options on that screen. If you are a refugee from Word Perfect World (voluntary or otherwise) ...

    Here's my stump speech on Word Perfect:
    Word and Word Perfect work very differently from one another. Each program's methods have strengths and weaknesses, but if you try to use one of these programs as if it were the other, it is like pushing on a string! You can easily make a lot of extra work for yourself.

    In Word 2000 or later you can get the function keys to display in a special toolbar at the bottom of the screen if you want (something like pressing F3 twice in WP). The following macro will do this.

    Sub ShowMeFunctionKeys()
    Commandbars("Function Key Display").Visible = True
    End Sub


    Learn about <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/styles.htm> Styles</A> - really learn! I resisted for years and now regret every day of those years because although that string was still very hard to push, it kept getting longer and longer, and had some very important projects tied to it! Once you understand styles and the Word concept of organizing things into Chinese boxes everything falls into place and instead of pushing a string, you can push a button that turns on the very powerful text processing machine known as Microsoft Word and it will start doing your work for you instead of running around behind you trying to undo what you just thought you did.

    Hope this helps,
