    Just got my new C2D MBP (first mac laptop), and it took me ages to figure out that there was no forward delete button, but 2 enter keys!

    Is there any way I can remap the second (smaller) enter key to function as forward delete? I find using Fn-Delete (Backspace) a bit counter-intuitive, why use 2 keys when 1 should suffice? :confused:

    Thanks.

    I tend to agree with you that the laptop keyboards on Macs are a little weird like that. Who the hell needs both Enter and Return? They affectively do the same darn thing.

    Since I read this post a month ago, I have been wanting to remap my enter key to a forward delete.
    Well, this app does it, and a bunch more.
