    Hi

    Couple very easy questions:

    1) Is there a keyboard shortcut to delete a file? It's a pain to drag it into the trash or to right click and select move to trash.

    2) How do I Zip multiple files? In windows I right click and select send to compressed folder. Didn't see anything like this on the Mac

    3) Is there a shortcut to open a Terminal window from the current GUI folder?

    Thanks!

    (1) Apple key + delete will delete the selected file
    (2) Select the files, right or ctrl-click and do a "Create archive of X items".
