macbook keys that don't exist (how to)
« on: March 16, 2018, 10:11:18 »

i was going to post about this, but thru searching the forum and googling i found my own answers

on my macbook the backspace key is labelled delete, but it's placed where backspace is and functions as a backspace key, so i wondered what actual delete was if it was even possible, and i found on the forum that
Fn + Backspace is Delete

after finding this i wondered about insert, and i found out that
Control + Backspace is Insert

since i was making this informative thread, i thought i should throw in that
1 or ` does the note kill/note key-off symbol

even if no one else needs this info, i feel like i might forget and look it up on here

without the delete key i was just highlighting things and cutting them
and without the insert key i was cutting and pasting things

anyway here's a quote from where i found the delete info on this forum
Deleting: I'm using a macbook...and there is NOT a backspace AND delete key. (only delete)

I need to be able to get rid of entries w/out moving everything else!
Interesting. My Macbook has only got a backspace key, delete can be achieved by pressing  fn+backspace. When searching for "macbook keyboard" on google, I can see that this "backspace" key I got is sometimes called "delete" key which seems to be a language dependent naming issue. Anyways, press fn and that delete key, it might solve your problem.
