View Full Version : Delete Button

New to Apple/Mac's, and was wondering......the delete button acts like the backspace button on a PC, is there a forward deleting button? How do you activate it if there is?

Thanks! B)

The del key is the key you want. It's the key under the help key. Also (depending on the app you're in) try some combinations of option-delete, shift-delete, command-delete etc.

On a laptop, function-delete does a forward delete, on a desktop there is a forward-delete button under the F14 key.

On the full size desktop keyboard there is a 'del' key above the four way arrow keys. On a laptop, you can press fn + delete to achieve the forward delete.

If you have a notebook, its FN + Delete. If you are on a desktop, its Shift + Delete. You might also wanna use Command + Shift + Left/Right Arrow to select a whole line in a paragraph, or Option + Shift + Left/Right Arrow to select words.
