I just got the Creator's Update & I think I am lost in a nightmare somewhere. Windows 10 does not ask if I am sure I want to send a file to the recycle bin. That is a safety net I really do not want to give up.  Can I fix that?

 

Many Thanks,

MamaWolf

See:  http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-enable-delete-confirmation-dialog-in-windows-8/

 

for a beautiful set of step-by-step instructions with screenshots.

 

It's interesting to see how different people want or don't want that feature.  Since I can restore from the Recycle Bin I have always found that prompt to be a major annoyance while others love it because it has the potential to prevent them from deleting something they selected by accident.

I don't use the re-cycle bin, that message is my safety net. I would be seriously upset if it were to disappear for ever.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

You Gentlemen are awesome. I am glad it was such an easy fix. I wish the rest of the update nightmare would go like that. I still have well over 70 programs & plug-ins for my graphic programs to reinstall & customize & I still don't have sound.

 

Have a good night Folks,

MamaWolf

Chris, what do you mean here?  Have you configured delete such that it actually deletes instantly?  If so, how is that done, as I've never tried it nor seen it done in all my decades using Windows.

MamaWolf,

 

           If you had this much stuff archived when going from Version 1607 to Version 1703, and it's not "ancient" then I'd strongly encourage you to submit feedback to Microsoft through the Feedback Hub and to the makers of your software.

 

           At this juncture I lay more of the blame on the software makers than Microsoft, since the tweaks necessary to make code identify itself as "Windows 10 compatible" were well-documented and available to developers long before July 2015, and if they want to be an ongoing part of the Windows ecosystem they should have been integrated by now (long before now, actually).

 

           Angry customers aren't something any business likes.

Corrected typo of "1603" to "1703"

Right click recycle bin, select properties.

Thanks, dhagerjohns.  Although I won't be exercising this option it's nice to know it's available.

 

I prefer to have the Recycle Bin and empty it on a regular basis.  It has saved my bacon from my occasional "twitchy fingers" more than once.

Sometimes I use it as storage!  :)

I will definitely be taking your advice on that britechguy. I want to take a few days to get everything installed & running as it should be & to also let my temper cool down a bit before I offer anyone feedback. Thanks again to all of you. I do love BleepingComputer.
