How do I remove the warning before deleting a shortcut in Windows? Every time I want to delete a shortcut it warns me that I'm not actually deleting the program, just a shortcut.

Did you Right click the recycle bin, properties. Uncheck "Display delete confirmation dialog" – Moab Oct 26 '10 at 19:22
@Moab Isn't that for emptying the Recycle Bin...? – Shinrai Oct 26 '10 at 19:52
@Shinrai: No, it's not. Moab is right. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Oct 27 '10 at 6:41
Oh, awesome. That's a totally inane place to put it, then...! – Shinrai Oct 27 '10 at 14:06
