Deleting Forward on Mac Laptops

macbook-pro.jpg

One issue that baffled me when I first bought my MacBook Pro was the delete key. The delete key on the Mac laptops deletes backward as opposed to windows machines where it deletes forward. There is no forward delete button on Apple laptops. It took me a few weeks to figure out that if I hold the Function key and press delete, then it deletes forward. Apparently I was not the only person confused by this. Apple posted a small video on this issue right here.

    Its the old typewriter backsapce key, they didn’t have room for an additional delete key too. Tiresome at first but you soon get used to it, though I can’t get used to the erratic behavior of the Delete key of the standard desktop keyboard in some Mac apps.
