If Blender 2.77a has a user-configurable 'turn delete confirmations' on/off setting, it's sure hidden. To be clear: in Object Mode, for instance, when you key X or press the Delete button on a selected object, a confirmation dialog pops up - confirmations slow my work flow.

Two years ago, an answer to this question (Remove Unnecessary Confirmation Popups ... ) said they were removed - so perhaps this feature is still unavailable?

  • $\begingroup$ What other popup dialogs slow down your workflow? If there is more than one, it is worth (probably) to define a 'custom operator' and wrapping this into an Add-on. First approach for Shift X based on this answer. $\endgroup$

I don't know if you can user configure it, but you can speed up the editing by pressing XD.

XEnter or X1 also works, but it's probably slower. You also can change the default shortcut for delete to D and then press D twice.

  • $\begingroup$ +1 Good idea ! DUH, why didn't I think of that :)) It would be nice to be able to do X X, instead of X D ... but that works. Hmmm ... How do we find out what shortcut key is associated with 'D' ? ( I tried to dump the preferences, but that just generates a python script ... odd. ... and no time to look through them all in the preferences panel ! ) thanks $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 24, 2016 at 19:18

    $\begingroup$ Go to user preferences > input and search for the key-binding 'D' $\endgroup$
