Default How can I delete blocks of text without being propted "delete y/n.

When using MS Word 2003 I get prompted every time I try to delete highlighted
(blocked) text. How can I turn off this prompt so that when I hit the delete
key, the selected text is immediately deleted?

Thanks.

When you use WordPerfect navigation keys, Word will prompt you with Delete
Block? in the status bar before deleting a selection of text, similar to the
way WordPerfect works. To turn off the prompt, go to

Tools | Options | General
Uncheck the two WordPerfect items (Help & Navigation Keys)
