I'm new mac user and it's quite hassle to use fn+del key to 'back-delete' like I have been doing in Windows PC.

is there anyway I could change shortcut key from fn+del to shift+del ?

cheers.

The only thing I've heard of is Butler from VersionTracker.com ~ I haven't used it, but there's an endorsement in this thread:

I understand what you want to do and it makes sense. Unless someone has very large hands, I don't imagine anyone can reach the function and delete keys with just one hand at the same time!

I answered with Butler because I hadn't heard of any other way to reassign keystroke functions. I ought to have given you the link to it the first time:

After searching further though, Ukelele might be a simpler way to do what you want:
