    How to Customize Delete Confirmation Dialog Prompt Details in Windows


    When you delete a single file or folder, the delete confirmation dialog displays basic details (metadata) like the file or folder name, date created, file type, and date modified by default, but will vary with each file type.

    A prop: value indicates a individual property or metadata within the Windows Property System that can be set on files/folders. You can customize the prop: value for the delete confirmation dialog to show any file and folder details you like in the prompt. The details you set to show in the prompt will only show if the property or metadata is available for the deleted file or folder.

    This tutorial will show you how to customize the delete confirmation dialog to show any file and folder details you want in the prompt for all users in Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    *Warning You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to customize what file/folder details show in the delete confirmation dialog.

    How do I restore the Windows 10 Sticky Note Delete Confirmation Dialog Box

    I turned off the Windows 10 Sticky Note delete confirmations (by checking the "Don't show this message again" check-box as I deleted a Sticky Note. How do I re-enable the delete confirmation dialog? All I have found so fer is the following fix, however,
    I do not have the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\StickyNotes" registry entry.

    To re-enable the prompt yourself, follow these steps:

    • Click

    Windows 10 - How to Enable Windows Explorer File Deletion Confirmation

    Hi, ok well I figured it out but I don't know why it does this. When you delete something from OneDrive using Windows Explorer you do NOT get the delete confirmation box, but if you delete a file on your local C: you do. I wonder if there's a way to turn
    that option on for OneDrive?
