Backspace versus Delete

Believe it or not, there is a difference between these two keys on your keyboard. Who knew?  When you hit the ‘Backspace‘ key it removes the character to the left.  The ‘Delete‘ key (AKA: forward delete) does just the opposite, it removes the character to the right.

*Apple Users – The ‘Delete‘ key on your keyboard is in the same place and serves the same function as the ‘Backspace‘ key on a PC keyboard. If you wanted to delete text to the right like a delete key on a PC press Fn + Delete.
