Q:  I found a change in Picasa last night when I was
    reviewing some photos. Previously, in the main screen, if I wanted
    to delete a photo, I would hit the delete button on my computer and
    a screen would come up giving me a final choice of delete or cancel.
    Mighty handy as there were times I would change my mind. Last night,
    I hit the delete button and instantly the photo was deleted; no
    screen or choice.

    I do know that Picasa recently updated. Could that be it? I would
    love to get back that “pre-delete” screen. How do I do that?

 

A: That’s a setting.  Don’t know how it got changed – but just go to
Tools->Options->General and UNcheck “Delete from Disk without Confirmation”

p.s. for Macintosh users, that would be Picasa->Preferences->General …
