Question:

Question: How do I turn off the confirmation dialog that pops up when dragging an item off my desktop (icloud enabled) to another file location on my Mac or other location? This confirmation step is incredibly annoying! ...and unnecessary.

With icloud enabled for My Desktop and Documents folders dragging an item from the Desktop or Documents to a non icloud enabled location generates a confirmation dialog that asks me if I am sure if I want to move the item and requires you to confirm that you want to move this item.


This is beyond annoying and a completely unnecessary interruption to normal workflow. Where is a setting that allows me to turn this off! I will have to disable icloud for my Desktop otherwise. Too disruptive to workflow.
