Can I disable the recycle bin delete confirmation?

I have already disabled the delete confirmation when deleting by mouse. I would not like to disable the delete confirmation when emptying the recycle bin. Can this be done?

I understand the former, but not the latter.

Let's say I have a file on my desktop. I right click and delete it and it goes tot he bin. When I right click the bin and press delete it then asks me if I am sure I want too. I want to be able to right click and empty the bin without the second confirmation.

Hello SambaMan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but you cannot disable the prompt before permanently deleting files by emptying the Recyle Bin.

The only way to stop this is to set Windows 7 to not move files into the Recycle Bin to always automatically permanently delete the files when you delete them instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have laready done that but thanks for the advice. My issue is that I want to make the final delete, when clicking the RB, not happen.

Well, theres indeed a way of disabling the Empty Recycle Bin confirmation dialog by using the NirCMD tool. See this article on how to do it.
