    Thank you DMD.

    The values for that will vary depending on the selected drive, and will not always be the same everyone.

    The key only affects the current user, but I have verified that the selection remains active even on other HDDs.
    If you want you can try to give a confirmation.

    Thank you

    I tested it on a few of my other systems, and the data value for "ShellState" varied on all of them. In addition, "ShellState" includes other settings than this one.

    If you have another PC to test on, you'll notice the data value will not be the same.

    This would be fine to export and import for a specific PC, but it just wouldn't be good to import on all systems.

    Thank you for your confirmation.
    A better solution is to act through the policy command
    Value "1" On and value "0" off

    Code:
    @echo off
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer" /v "ConfirmFileDelete" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    taskkill /im explorer.exe /f & explorer.exe
    exit

    exit

    Actually:

    Allows you to have File Explorer display a confirmation dialog whenever a file is deleted or moved to the Recycle Bin.

    If you enable ("1") this setting, a confirmation dialog is displayed when a file is deleted or moved to the Recycle Bin by the user.

    If you disable ("0") or do not configure (delete "ConfirmFileDelete") this setting, the default behavior of not displaying a confirmation dialog occurs. Basically, just whatever the user has set.

    (see option 2 and 3 below)

    A reg-file would be very welcome for emptying the recycle bin without confirmation in Win10............

    @pietcorus2,

    If you like, I just created a new tutorial for a "Empty Recycle Bin" context menu that has an option to empty the Recycle Bin without confirmation.

    You can't stop the confirmation to empty the Recycle Bin.

    However, you use the .bat file below that uses the command from Option Six in the tutorial below to do so as a workaround.

    Empty Recycle Bin.bat

    PowerShell Clear-RecycleBin -force -ErrorAction:Ignore
