    Where can I find the delete button on a Macbook? Am I being blind/stupid or does it not exist. I'm fed up of keep using the backspace button!!!
    Cheers:)

    I don't have a MacBook, but I think it's something like shift + backspace or option + backspace. Try those out.

    Just worked it out.

    Its the 'fn' key (function?) and backspace.

    Yup, that's function. I wanted to say that in my post but I wasn't actually sure fn was a button on the MB keyboard. :eek:

    It's a 3 year old thread. They got their answer, and that wasn't it. And they haven't been on the site for 2 years.

    Necrothreading =)

    On a Macbook:

    Fn + backspace - "del" key (delete letter to the right)
    Alt + backspace - Delete last word
    Command + backspace - Delete whole line


    Note: Answering just so any googlers can find out, like I did.
