I installed Yosemite 10.10.3, which comes with the new Photos app. Seems nice so far...

When deleting a photo on my MacBook, a warning message is shown:

Delete from All Devices — This photo will be deleted from all your devices.

I don't need to see this every time I delete a photo. I can't see any settings to suppress this message - are there any known workarounds?

Command+Delete avoids the confirmation dialog.

    That is much less painful, thank you. I was hoping for some random .plist somewhere that had "ConfirmPhotoDelete" or something... Nov 26, 2016 at 16:28

If you delete the photo or photos using the right-click context menu rather than the keyboard shortcut then this confirmation sheet is not shown.

  • Thanks for the tip, but as of OSX 10.10.3 I'm finding that the right-click context menu's Delete also shows the delete confirmation message Apr 20, 2015 at 2:58
