Forum Question: How To Delete-Forward Using the Mac Keyboard?

The old PC “Delete” key deletes text immediately forward. How do you do that on a MAC?

    The Mac Extended Keyboard has a forward delete key. But I’m guessing you have either a MacBook or the modern iMac wireless keyboard. In that case, ;ook for the “fn” key on your keyboard. Hold that down while you press the delete key.

    I did try your suggestion – DELETE does delete forward, so thanks a lot for that!

    I do have the modern (imac) wireless keyboard. The delete key only deletes backward. Is there another key to delete FORWARD?

    Use the “fn” key. Hold down fn and press Delete and it will delete forward.
