Mansrm, has given you a good answer. To follow up, I agree, the warning is very annoying. Remember, however, if you do not have that warning, everything will be gone, when you decide to delete. I have seen more than several posts from members who have deleted files, etc. ony to regret it. I for one, put up with the annoying warning. It is there for my protection. Of course, I want you to enjoy you Windows 7 OS the fullest and am glad that there is a method that will accomplish what you are looking for.

Take care and wishing you the best.

Right click on Recycle bin select properties and uncheck show delete confirmation dialog.
The item will be placed in the recycle bin without that annoying warning but it will not be permanently deleted.
