    Hello everyone. I just got my Mac last week, so far, much better that anything I have ever had before. Just need to learn those shortcuts with the command key.

    Thanks for reading.

    Yeah, is that a statement of fact or a request?

    ⌘ = command
    ⌥ = option
    ⌃ = control
    ⇧ = shift

    Thanks

    I think for the most part I have figured some of the basics. I know I will still need help with some things that are obvious to other users. Anyway, I need to get to sleep so I'll talk to you guys later. One more question though. I don't know if the older MacBooks had a backspace key or a delete key. The problem that I have had the most is how to actually delete a character (nevermind, I just found out (shift delete)). I guess I am just too use to using a backspace key. The delete key works fine for me because it is in the same spot as the backspace key on a P.C.. Just use the shift key! Well, Good Night or Morning to everyone, time for me to sleep.

    You don't need to hold shift. Delete ⌫ on a Mac is the same as backspace on a PC.
