The Windows Recycle Bin, acts as a safeguard when deleting files and folders from your computer, whereby all deleted files are first sent there, and remain as such until you decide otherwise. If you've accidentally deleted a file/folder, It can easily be restored to It's original directory. Wouldn't It be great, If you could view In depth details of the Recycle Bin delete confirmation dialog box? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to do this with incredible ease.
Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. For this tweak to take effect, you must first check the Display delete confirmation dialog checkbox as shown below. This Is done by right-clicking the Recycle Bin, and selecting 'Properties'. Be sure to hit OK on exit.
Now when you right-click a file or folder and hit Delete, by default, It only displays a limited amount of details as per the Image below.
After the tweak Is applied, you will see a lot more Information as follows.
To achieve this, I will use a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry and apply the tweak thereafter. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further ado, let's get this tutorial started.
Step One:Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice, and double-click the Show Details.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so click Yes.
Step Two:A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so hit OK to finalize the process.
Step Three:I've now right-clicked my folder and selected Delete, and as you can see, the Recycle Bin's delete confirmation dialog box, displays an array of details relative to my folder. A perfect result!
Last Step:In the event you've changed your mind and want to reverse the change, simply double-click the Remove Details.reg file and click Yes.
Final Thoughts:The good thing about this tweak, Is that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry, which leaves very little to no room for corruption. Moreover, the change can be reversed, just as easy as It Is to apply.
