So… You have Windows 8. When you click delete on a file or folder it doesn’t give you
a prompt asking if you are sure you want to move to the recycle bin? Well, if you would like
that feature back, you are in luck. With a few very simple steps, you can have it.


Right-click on your Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop and select Properties.
Tick the box next to “Display delete confirmation dialog” to apply the changes.


That’s all there is to it. Now you will have the prompt back.
