Delete For Mac Keyboard

Delete key on MacBook – solved – how to hit delete on a mac keyboard

Wait a minute, you just shelled out on a new macbook and there’s no “Delete” key!

All is not lost, the delete key on macbook function can be achieved by pressing the function (fn) and backspace keys at the same time.

Jan 17, 2009 Here is the easiest way to reset your keyboard. The screenshot you see here on the left shows a Mac OS X (Leopard) window that pops up when a new usb keyboard is connected. It asks user to press the key on the right of (left) shift, to detect the correct international map. (For Mac users, it’s nearly always Delete; Backspace is more of aWindows word.) On extended keyboards, you may also find a “forward delete” option. It may also be labeled Delete or Del, and it has. Command+delete works just fine. Highlight the file (single click or use your keyboard to select it), then hold command and without releasing it, push delete. This moves the file or folder to the trash. Note that delete is in the same place as Backspace on a Windows keyboard.

(Works on most macbooks & macbook pro’s)

Rather have a physical delete key on macbook ? A free third party utility called “PowerKey” lets you reassign the Power key on Macs to function as a forward delete button, just like how the DEL key works in the PC world. Technically PowerKey has other options and can remap the key to perform other functions too, but the Delete option is the most relevant to our needs here.

Deleting text in front of the cursor with the regular Delete key can be done by holding down the Function, or fn key while pressing it.
You can also do this by pressing Control + D.
You can delete the entire word behind the cursor by pressing Control + Delete or Option + Delete.
You can delete the entire line of text or paragraph behind the cursor by pressing Command + Delete.
Even on a laptop keyboard, you don’t have to feel constrained by Apple’s Delete key—if you know the right way to use it.

What’s the Command key?
The Command key has a legacy that leads to confusion. Many will refer to it as the Apple key, because in the past there used to be an Apple logo on it. The logo you will definitely find on this key looks like a squiggly square (?). It was designed by Susan Kare for the original iMac (and based on the Scandinavian icon for places of interest).

The Command (cmd) key works in a similar way to the Control key on a PC. On a Mac you use the Command key where on a PC you would use Control (or Ctrl). E.g:

Command-B = Bold

Command-I = Italic


Command-C = Copy

Command-X = Cut

Command-V = Paste
