Light table tab: deleting to thrash several selected pictures implies to click twice per picture, even when box "confirm before removal" is unchecked - Windows 10 version -
I begin my learning phase of the light table, especially the phase of sorting pictures:
Once imported, I mark rejected pictures
I select all rejected photos
I click on "trash" to remove these pictures from my photos directory.
If I leave the delete confirmation checked in the preferences, I have a 1st window "Are you sure you want to move the x selected photos to the trash"
I click yes; then I have 2 requests for removal confirmation per selected photo: one for each picture itself; another for its xmp file.
If I uncheck the deletion confirmation in the preferences, I do not have the first confirmation window, the one that concerns all the rejected photos, but I still have 2 requests for confirmation by photo rejected ...
In both cases, this 2nd series of confirmations is a too heavy process

As I see for OSX we have anyhow a local version
