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.


Type a random sentence into your document.


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


Now type in another random sentence.


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.


Congratulations! You have finished this lesson!
