Highly doubt it's possible

In reply to: Vista nag screen

I highly doubt it's possible to disable that. It's been around in one form or another since about Windows95, so best get used to it, or find a third party file manager for all your deleting needs.

It's not new, but...

In reply to: Re Highly doubt it is possible

Was generally only displayed when dealing with large files or large groups of files. Vista typically takes longer to calculate and move the files, one of the issues that was partially addressed by SP1, causing the dialog box to appear much more frequently. As Jimmy said, though, the only solution is to use a third-party file manager to increase performance and decrease the notifications.

Try it with Auto Tuning turned off.

In reply to: Re Highly doubt it is possible

Read http://www.ocmodshop.com/ocmodshop.aspx?a=900

There are other tweaks showing up to turn off all the hard work by Microsoft.

Here I've turned off Aero, the desktop experience/theme, UAC and am slowly getting back to XP's performance levels.

Better Check Again

In reply to: Re Highly doubt it is possible

Every time you delete a file or folder in XP or earlier you will get a pop up box telling you it is going to the recycle bin. Not all app's. however go to the bin, they are just deleted.

You can avoid that...

In reply to: Better Check Again

If you drag-and-drop to the Recycle Bin, and with application shortcuts drag-and-drop two or more at a time, you can avoid the 'Are you sure' prompt.

And there's no alert when moving a file/folder between directories, only a 'transferring' confirmation dialog if it takes an 'extended' amount of time.

That can be disabled

In reply to: Better Check Again

That can be disabled easily enough. Right-click the recycle bin, select properties, and there's a checkbox at the bottom. Still won't get rid of the dialog box that is supposed to give you a visual cue as to the files being deleted. That can't be disabled without likely violating the EULA, and doing a little decompiling.

Simple

Hold down your shift key when you delete an item and you won't even see the screen and it won't even go to the recycle bin.

Try

In reply to: Vista nag screen

On recycle bin, right click, choose properties. Then unclick the box named "display deleted confirmation dialog". Still no go then choose "Do not.........." this will side step the recycle bin all together.
