    This option affects all users on the computer. You must be logged in as an administrator to be able to do this option.

    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 3 below.
    2. To Allow Users to Turn Recycle Bin Delete Confirmation On or Off
    NOTE: This is the default setting. It allows users to be able to use OPTION ONE above.
    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 3 below.
    3. Save the .reg file to the desktop.

    4. Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

    5. Click/tap on Run, Yes (Windows 7/8) or Continue (Vista), Yes, and OK when prompted.

    7. Log off and log on, or restart the computer to apply.
    Did you try that? Did you try it and it failed?

    Did you want to make ALL files be always permanently deleted?
    If so, use this: Recycle Bin - Permanently Delete Items Automatically - Windows 7 Help Forums

    We are not really understanding what you are trying to say here. Maybe the error message you are getting is something we arent used to seeing when working with this issue. Do you know how to take a screenshot using the Snipping Tool in Windows 8.1 and 10?

    If you do, please take a screen shot of the error and upload it to a message here. This may help us work with you on this issue more effectively.

    Brink Hi and good morning to you.
    The files come off of a real small sd card in my gopro camera or i can take the sd out and put it in a card reader !
    And work from that card , those files when deleted do not go to the bin they are deleted for ever ,
    i use the gopro as a dash camera and i have to delete them several times a day , and to me it is really a pain in the you know what to have the popup confirmatory ask me if i am sure i want to delete them !
    In win 7 i can uncheck that box and it never ask me again but going to 8 or 10 it just does not let me do what i want .
    I have never used group thing so i cant tell if it works or not !
    Thanks for your help on this !

    Ah, ok. I see why this is happening now.

    Removable storage does not have a Recycle Bin. Since it doesn't have a Recycle Bin, it will always ask Y/N to permanently delete.

    Yeah, I'm afraid that you are for removable drives, but you shouldn't see the message when deleting from your internal drives.
