    Trying to use the magic keyboard on my work PC and can't figure out how to use the delete key on the Magic Keyboard.

    Let's say I'm in Outlook and highlight a message. With my wired Apple Keyboard I could hit the delete key to delete the highlighted message. On the Magic Keyboard every press of the delete key takes me out of the mail section and into the calendar section. o_O On Apple's help page, they suggest shift-delete, but shift-delete actually does nothing.

    When typing text (like this post), the delete key works correctly as a backspace. Shift-delete does not work as a forward delete, however.

    Anyone have the same problems or know a fix?

    I haven't found anything either! I've always used mac keyboards at work to keep consistency with what I use at home and I can't even log into my computer with it. Nothing to Ctrl - alt- delete with.

    Kind of insane–not sure how anyone would use it at all with windows (do you not use ctrl - alt - delete to logon?).

    Yeah that's exactly the problem. No way to make the "Delete" key register as delete.
