    Hi i'm new to Mac and i just got mine 2 days ago so i have a few questions about keyboard shortcuts.

    When i want to delete something, for example 5 files in my documents, i highlight it all but i can't seem to move them to thrash by clicking the delete key. I have to back click and click move to thrash so can anyone just teach me how to change it?

    Also, is it possible to refresh a page when browsing by clicking a key? For windows it's F5 as many of you know, but what is the key for mac?

    Thanks~

    The combination for deleting is Command and Delete. Command and R refresh the page.

    The inability to delete stuff by pressing the delete key was the thing that annoyed me most after switching to Mac.

    That and I didn't know how to rename stuff for at least two days and I had to do it by mashing on the keyboard until I hit the return key.

    And the lack of a "cut" option in the Finder.

    But that was about it. :D

    I assume you've discovered all those capabilities now, the last one being available starting with Lion.

    I still struggle with booting up sometimes.
    The button... it confounds me.
