    Keyboard shortcut for Move Into Trash on wireless keyboard, i.e. w.o. delete button
    Hello

    I'm using the Apple wireless keyboard and it doesn't have the delete button unlike the big sized wired Apple keyboards.

    I frequently have to delete files when I work on files and to do that I always have to use Mouse left button and select Move Into Trash.

    I googled a bit but could not find anywhere showing a keyboard shortcut for Move Into Trash on wireless keyboard. Are there any keyboard shortcut for Move Into Trash on wireless keyboard? Thanks.

    Sure it does. The large delete button at the top right of the keyboard is a "backwards" delete key but by holding down the Fn key at the same time, it acts like a "forwards" delete key just like the large wired keyboard.

    I wish that was working but that works only for deleting letters inside the text. I want to delete the file.
    To make it clear, here's the screenshot. I want to delete that file selected. In that position for example Cmd+O acts like the double-click and Open. I 'd like to have a similar keyboard shortcut to Move Into Trash. Thanks.

    Command + delete usually works for me.

    Sorry but that also doesn't (CMD + Del) work on my keyboard as my keboard doesn't have a "Del" button.

    Just to eliminate any misunderstandings here is my keyboard.

    That's your Delete key, for future reference.

    Someone should find a key for the symbols used on the keyboard and post it.
