How to enable Delete Confirmation Dialog in Windows 8?

I have been trying the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and here’s one thing that I noticed about the Confirmation Dialog.

By default, the Windows 8 doesn’t ask you for the confirmation when deleting a file or a folder.

So, when you press a delete key on selecting a file or a folder, the file/folder is deleted straight away and moved to the Recycle bin.

If you want to enable the “Delete Confirmation” Dialog, you can do that by following the instructions below.

3. Now, try to delete the file. You should see the confirmation dialog before deleting the file.
