    Delete Confirmation (XP Pro)

    How can I enable my computer to perform a delete file without the popup box "Are you sure you want to delete this file?" I know there's a way, I just don't know the way...
    Thanks

    Uncheck the box "Display delete confirmation dialog" in the Recycle Bin properties (rightclick Recycle Bin>Properties).

    In addition to Doc's suggestion, if you want to delete a file without it going to the Recycle Bin (i.e. permanently delete), select the file and press Shift + Del.
