When you delete a single file or folder, the Delete Confirmation dialog box displays basic information (metadata), such as the file or folder name, creation date, file type and modification date, but it differs depending on the file type.
Accessory: this value defines a unique property or metadata in the Windows property system that can be set for files/folders. You can configure the prop: value in the Deletion Confirmation dialog so that all necessary file and folder data is displayed on the command line. The details you have set to display on the command line will only be displayed if the property or metadata for the deleted file or folder is available.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to configure the Delete Confirmation dialog box to display all of the file and folder details that you want to see on the command line for all Windows 10 users.
