    Hello Jerry,

    If you mean for the Recycle Bin, then the tutorial below can help show you how to.

    Yes to turn it off in win 8.1 and win 10 .
    I think it is the one that is before the bin when you right click on a gopro video mp4 file
    and say delete it ask if you are sure you want to do it !
    Thank you Brink !

    In that case, the tutorial below would be for that instead.

    That's what I just posted above is for.

    Uncheck the Display delete confirmation dialog box and apply for each drive letter at the top you don't want to see a delete confirmation for.

    That does not work in win 8.1 or win 10 i know about that part it is
    unchecked and it still ask if i am sure i want to delete the files !
    I think i read on one of the forums that that did not work like it use to
    by unchecking the box !
    Do you know of a regedit that i can do to make it work ?
    Thank you again!

    Did you try ALL the methods? (Recycle Bin Properties, Registry File, and Group Policy)

    The same link that Brink gave has a Reg file you can use.

    Doing what I did above had me no longer get a "Are you sure? Y/N" dialog when deleting files or emptying Recycle Bin in Windows 10.

    Where are you deleting the files from? Perhaps it may be UAC asking to confirm instead if it's from a system folder location.

    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 !
