    Is there a simple way to prevent a file from being deleted, by me or anybody else.  Basically what I am looking for is an interrupt of some sort that simply displays a Message box asking me if I wish to delete the file, should I accidentally tag it for deletion.  Right now, if I right click on an Excel file and select <Delete>, then the file is deleted without any questions being asked.  I want the system to interrupt with a [Delete] box that asks me if I want to delete the selected file >YES >NO.  I also want a process that is simple, if that is possible.

      Right click on the Recycle Bin, go to Properties, select the ‘Display delete confirmation dialog(ue)’ option and click Apply. Voila!

      Sky, thank you very much.  So simple, but when you don’t know where to start…
