    Unhappy How to change "fn+delete" to "shift+delete" ?
    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:

    um.. what i meant was,,,

    when I use office word tool to create documents, i can't use back-delete' which was not on the keyboard of mac.

    i kno i could do it by using fn+del but i want to change it to shift + del becuz it's more convenient .

    any idea ?

    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:
