The Elusive Delete Key on a Mac

At a recent TILT day, a teacher asked me if there was a delete key on the Mac laptops. You know, on a PC you have a backspace and a delete key. The backspace erases from right to left and the delete key erases from left to right.

After poking around a little bit, I found that you can indeed emulate the PC delete key. If you have a Function button on your keyboard ( the bottom left). Holding this down while hitting your delete key and you will erase from left to right. Also, using control + D will work in most programs.

Great question, glad there was an answer.
