Windows 10 Recycle Bin Options
In Windows 10, by default, when you delete a file you don’t get a warning that asks if your sure you want to send the file to the Recycle Bin. You just right-click the file and click Delete and it’s gone. Unless you’ve otherwise configured Recycle Bin the file does go to the Recycle Bin and can be immediately returned to its original location by pressing CTRL + Z immediately after deleting it.
But if you want to be warned before you delete a file, like you use to be warned in Windows 7 and earlier versions of Windows, that can be easily done. And here’s how you do it.
1. Right-click on the Recycle Bin icon on your desktop and click on Properties.
2. Choose your C:\ drive.
3. Tick the box next to “Display delete confirmation dialog”
4. Click Apply/OK.
Now we don’t recommend this because the Recycle Bin is like a safety net when you delete files. But if your brave and don’t even want the files to be moved to the Recycle Bin, you can tick the circle next to “Don’t move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted. Keep in mind if you do this there will be no easy way to recover the deleted files.
Oh and Colombo (EB) reminded me to say — “just one more thing”: If you’re going to be using a cleanup utility to clean up your PC, most of them will empty your Recycle Bin automatically, so be sure to check to make sure you don’t have anything you need in the Recycle Bin before doing a system cleanup.
And did you know that the shortcut CTRL+Y in most Windows applications functions as Redo, reversing a previous Undo, Now you do. Right?
