Confirm Record changes Option

Latest Access versions has Confirm Record Changes in menu Tools > Options > Edit/Find. Tooltip says that option used to show confirmation dialog when you change a record. Did you ever see such confirmation dialog?
Thanks to MVP Karl Donaubauer, who made a clear explanation of it:
The name of the option may be a bit misleading. It refers to the messages that you get when you delete one or more records or insert multiple records from the clipboard into a table, query or form. "Do you really want to...delete/insert..." etc. If the box is unchecked there are no such messages instead the actions are executed silently.

I have a question... :)
how do you turn it off when you deploy app somewhere? I couldn't do that untill I've installed normal access (not runtime) and then turned it off. After that I'v installed runtime again, and it worked.
