Whenever I'm attempting to perform Switch selection in ArcMap table I'm always presented with this friendly prompt:

I'm fully aware of 'dangers' of this operation, and I think I could live without this warning. Is there a way to switch it off?

HowTo: Turn off "This table (potentially) contains a large number of records..." warning message

Summary

The table window in ArcMap provides a 'Select All' command and a 'Switch Selection' command. When there is a large number of records in a table, 'Switch Selection' and 'Select All' could potentially take a long time to complete. A warning message allows you to cancel the operation. If you always want to perform the operation, you may want to turn off this warning message.

Procedure

Click Selection > Options. Uncheck the Warning Threshold check box.

Alternatively, you can adjust the record count at which the message is displayed.

Although its an old paper, I can confirm it works in 10:
