Hi Dan D,
No, you can not turn off the confirmation box.
But if you want to delete multiple file and do not want to hit the confirmation box for every image, then you can mark all the images as Rejected by selecting all the images and hit X key and then delete them. At that time you will only get one confirmation box.
Thank you. I am moving over from Aperture and there are a few speed bumps along the way. Your workaround is good but it is still involves an extra step or two. I just want to delete an image, not mark it with an X and then delete it later. Growing pains are never fun! Thanks!
I can understand that its adding extra step to your workflow but we have this confirmation box to save user if they try to accidentally delete an image then Lightroom would prompt you to confirm the deletion before deleting it and as Lightroom does not store the original image it gives you two option either just to delete it from Lightroom or the computer as well.
Thanks for your help!
I understand the reasoning but I still wish there was a default single keystroke to delete the photo from the gallery. Regarding the alert that pops up, sometimes there are checkboxes within an alert box in Photoshop: "Don't remind me about this anymore."
Of course, now I have put rejection Xs on my images but I cannot seem to be able to delete the images anyway. I went to the help forums and it seems involved. For example, take a look at this thread: Deleting rejects
You can delete the images by a single key in collections but if you are gong to completely remove that from Lightroom catalog. You will surely be prompted for the confirmation.
If you want you can raise a feature request for the same at :Photoshop Family Customer Community

Thanks so much Bob, you just saved me thousands of mouse clicks and time.
