    Default Windows Explorer - Win8

    In Win8's windows explorer, when I select a file and press Del key, no windows pops up asking for confirmation whether I wish to continue deleting the file. Is it possible to turn ON this feature?

    Right click > Properties > Display delete confirmation dialogue.

    I think it should be on as a default but most likely off for the tablet brigade.
