Mac keyboard shortcut to move things to the Trash – Mac Guides: command-backspace #mac #keyboard #shortcut

You delete files and folders by moving them to the Trash. You can:
Drag and drop a file on the trash icon in the dock
Select a file or files and use the keyboard shortcut: command-backspace
Select a file or files and choose “File > Move to Trash” from the menu bar
- on many Mac keyboards, the backspace key is called delete. It in fact functions as backspace which removes the character left of the cursor; to delete a character under the cursor you have to press Fn-delete.
- any keyboard shortcut other than function keys requires a modifier key, hence the command-backspace/command-delete in stead of just backspace/delete.
