Lesson 3: Delete and Backspace

On a full-size keyboard, the backspace key and the delete key behave differently.

On a Chromebook, there is no delete key, but if you press Alt + Backspace, it behaves like a delete key.

Understanding this feature can save you a lot of time during the editing process.

Lesson Steps


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:

  • Delete = Alt + Backspace
