Is there a way to prompt a user before deleting an item?

Currently if the Del key is pressed while an account is selected, it goes right to the Deleted Items folder without prompting the user if that's their intended action.

Is there a way to change this?

I asked about this because Windows 8 computers using a Microsoft Account logon can't connect to a shared db.

You can use windows accounts... as long as all use the same account. Obviously not good for sharing with coworkers but works well to share with your own multiple computers. oh, and the db needs to be on one of the computers - you can't use an external sql server.
