    How to turn Delete Confirmation Dialogue OFF


    This was covered in an earlier thread 'How to turn recycle bin delete confirmation off', but it was marked SOLVED.
    Not for me! I have the same problem as Fresh Daemon did there, where the solution was: some of his files were on SHARED (network) drives.
    But my setup is simpler: I have NO shared files or drives. But I cannot stop the damned delete confirmation dialogue coming up despite unchecking it in the Recycle Bin.
    I am assuming that in File Explorer, executing PROPERTIES> then when it shows a drive as 'Local Disk', that is evidence enough?

    Any ideas, please?

    What do you have the Recycle Bin settings configured as? Since you only have local disks, you should be able to turn them off in the Recyle Bin properties.
