Setting The Delay Time When Deleting An In-Use File

Windows XP has a delay time of a few seconds when deleting an in-use file. (Example: when an mp3 file is open and you delete that file, Windows XP will say that it is deleting the file for about 3 seconds, then says that it cannot delete the file, since the file is open).

I want to set the settings in Windows 8 to do exactly the same thing. Windows 8's default setting is to immediately state that the mp3 file is in use and cannot delete it. I want Windows 8 to wait for 3 seconds until it states that it cannot delete it.

Reason why I need this option is that I delete the file first, then I change the mp3 file so it is no longer in use.
That's the only order of doing this thing that I do.

Your help would be much appreciated. Thank you so much.
