    Word Confirm Delete (Word 2000)

    I have a copy of Word 2000 that when I highlight some text and tap delete it requests that I confirm the deletion just like the old WordPerfect 5.

    How the (expletive deleted) do I turn this off? It's driving me nuts.

    Select Tools | Options....
    Activate the General tab.
    Clear the "Navigation keys for WordPerfect users" check box (and "Help for WordPerfect users" as well, if applicable).
    Click OK.

    YES! That's what I thought!

    It does not work on this one machine. Think I'll try a reinstall.

    Many Thanks for your very quick reply. Wonderful place the Lounge

    Before reinstalling, check if there is a macro named EditClear; this would overrule the built-in action of the Delete key.
