How delette files without muliple OK's?
Hi,
I have a new laptop with Vista home premium on it.
I can not delete files like I could in XP. Every time
I delete a file, a box comes up with a bunch of choices in it.
One is "as Administrator" or something like that. Clicking
on that a few times deletes the file.
I have been unable find out how to make it work like XP.
Can anyone tell me how to do this? It would save me a
lot of time and frustration if it would work like XP did.
TIA for any suggestions.
Hal

Re: How delette files without muliple OK's?
Hi, Hal.

Deletion still does work almost identically in WinXP, Vista and Win7.

When we highlight a filename and click Delete, that file goes to the Recycle
Bin. It stays there until the bin is too full to hold the next item we want
to delete. Then, in the background, Windows clears out enough of the oldest
deadwood in the bin to make room for the new items. So long as a deleted
item is still in the bin, we can resurrect it if we change our mind or found
that we deleted something in error. Or we can Empty the Recycle Bin
ourselves. Once an item has been cleared from the bin, though, it is gone
forever. (Well, there are utilities available that can sometimes still
recover "permanently deleted" items, but they are not a part of Windows.)

If we choose, we can bypass the Recycle Bin and permanently delete a file
immediately. Just hold down the <Shift> key while clicking <Delete>. Or
right-click the Recycle Bin icon, choose Properties, and change the default
action to do this for all future deletions.

When Windows thinks we are about to delete a critical System file, it will
ask us to confirm and, for some files, to furnish Administrator credentials
and permissions before taking such a drastic step. But it shouldn't do this
for routine deletions.

How is this different from the way it worked for you in WinXP?

Re: How delette files without muliple OK's?
Thanks for the reply, the thing that's different is that I have to give
administrative permission for ALL deletes. I can't just delete a
file with or without the shift without the system then requesting
administrative permission to proceed.

Hi, Hal.

OK, let's start with the basics: Are you the Administrator? AND logged in
as such?

Yes, I am the only one who uses this laptop.
I must be logged in as an administrator because when I click on
do it as administrator it proceeds. I think it would stop if I didn't have
administrative privileges. Do you think it would help if I password
protected the account?

Hi, Hal.

To confirm your account type, click Control Panel | User Accounts. Under
your User Name, does the word "Administrator" appear? I'm running Win7 and
it has been well over a year since I used Vista very much, so I don't recall
the appearance of that screen, but that's what mine looks like.

Even a Standard User can Run as Administrator if he supplies the
Administrator credentials. And, if there is NO password on the
Administrator account, then all that is required at this point is to press
Enter. That might be your situation.

But maybe all you need to do is right-click the Recycle Bin again, choose
Properties, and clear the check from the box that says, "Display delete
confirmation dialog".

Re: How delette files without muliple OK's?
I set up a password and that fixed it.
It works just like XP now. Right click, delete, done.
Thanks for all of your replies.
