    How to Check or Uncheck Do For All Dialog Checkbox by Default in Windows 10


    When you cut, copy, move, or delete multiple selected files and/or folders from one location to another in Windows, you may get a file operation conflict dialog (ex: "File Access Denied") prompting you what to do if say for example you needed to provide administrator permission to move the files and/or folders. You will also have a Do this for all current items checkbox to make it easier to apply what you want to do to all items.

    The "Do this for all current items" checkbox will always be checked or unchecked as it was when last used by default.

    This tutorial will show you how to have the Do this for all current items confirmation dialog checkbox to be checked or unchecked by default for your user account in Windows 10.


    The downloadable .reg files below will modify the DWORD value in the registry key below.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\OperationStatusManager

    ConfirmationCheckBoxDoForAll DWORD

    0 = Uncheck
    1 = Check

    EXAMPLE: "Do this for all current items" checkbox in "File Access Denied" and "Destination Folder Access Denied" dialogs

     3. To Check "Do this for all current items" by default

    A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 4 below.

    download

    4. Save the .reg file to your desktop.

    5. Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

    6. When prompted, click/tap on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.

    7. You can now delete the downloaded .reg file if you like.


    That's it,
    Shawn

    Hi Shawn.

    The default setting is with the checkbox not ticked (i.e. ConfirmationCheckBoxDoForAll value is 0), but your reg files have the reversed effect.
