If you have recently bought a Chromebook and surprising why its keyboard doesn’t have a “Delete” button, and you are missing that badly, here is a nice tip for you. Although the Chromebooks don’t have a dedicated Delete key, you can use a preset keys combination to function as the Delete button.
You can use the Alt + Backspace keys to work as Delete. This means that simply hold the ‘Alt’ key and press the Backspace button, it would function as the Delete key. What a relief! Moreover, hold the Control key along with these keys to delete words instead of individual letters. Hence, Ctrl + Alt + Backspace = Delete words.
Although, the users can remap keyboard buttons on Chromebooks by visiting the Settings > Device > Keyboard settings, but this works only for Search, Ctrl and Alt keys. For example, you can remap the ‘Search’ key on Chromebooks to the ‘Caps Lock’ key, which is also missing here.
