My Desktop Items Delete with a single click - (No verification Y/N box)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I'm running an Acer Aspire V w/ Windows 8.1

    When I (1) select an item on my desktop and then (2) press "Delete", the item is instantly deleted without a YES / CANCEL verification box asking if I really want to delete the item. 

    Sucks because sometimes I didn't mean to delete something, but just hit the "Del" button by accident.


    This problem (or weird setting) is not present when I have a window open, ONLY when on the desktop.
    For example: If I open my videos folder and (1) select an item in that folder and then (2) press "Delete", a verification box pops up and I click Yes or NO. 

    My graphics properties look in order and I currently do not have any desktop managing app of the sort installed. I tried installing "Fences 2.0" but I couldn't even select items on the desktop, almost as if they were locked, so I uninstalled it.

    Any insights are helpful! I haven't found a practical solution.
