    [Help] Instant delete


    Hello guys this is my second help topic sry about that I'm kinda attracting problems or something . Not sure if this is the right place to posted this hope it is . Well the problem is that when I select a file and press the delete button on my keyboard instantly deletes the file. As I remember in Windows 7 when I pressed the button it poped up a little window and asked me if I really want to delete that file. IDK if this is possible to get in Win 8. Maybe you guys can help me how to enable this in Win 8 thanks

    Hello Denzof, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could use the same tutorial below to turn on delete confirmation for the Recycle Bin.

    Recycle Bin Delete Confirmation - Turn On or Off - Windows 7 Forums

    In addition, check to make sure that you do not have the Recycle Bin set to not permanently delete items automatically.

    Recycle Bin - Permanently Delete Items Automatically - Windows 7 Forums

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
