Delete and Backspace

On a full-sized keyboard, the delete key and the backspace key do two different things.

But perhaps you have noticed: Chromebooks don't have a delete key!

Don't worry. There's a trick that allows you to turn your backspace key into a delete key (and thus allows you to delete characters to the right of the cursor).

This trick will save you time and frustration.

Lesson Steps

 
1

Type a random sentence into your document.

2

Put your cursor at the end of the sentence and erase it using the Backspace key.

3

Now type in another random sentence.

4

This time, put your cursor at the beginning of the sentence and erase it using the Delete key.

Remember: If you're using a Chromebook, use Alt + Backspace in order to delete letters to the right of the cursor.

5

Congratulations! You have finished this lesson!
