    These options help lot when windows 8 will be launch because at that time we will need to operate.

    hi – any idea how to DISABLE the delete confirmation dialog in windows 8 when using a USB memory stick? It is not listed in the recycle bin therefore it’s behaviour is not set there.

  3. A USB Drive or removable media does not have a Recycle Bin unlike your desktop, so anything you delete from it is just simply gone. Hence there is no way to disable the Delete Confirmation Box as far as I know. This is probably a safety measure. If you use iBin, you can create a Recycle Bin for your USB. You will then be offered various options. https://www.thewindowsclub.com/create-a-recycle-bin-for-usb-drive-removable-media

    this is contrary to previous versions of windows which did not display a dialog on deletion from the USB. all i’m asking is how to make it perform like previous windows versions did, i’m sure it’s just a registry thing, right?
