I use a wireless Apple keyboard at home and a wired (full sized) one at work. Now I constantly get confused when I want to do a forward delete, since I'm used to the fn+delete combination.

Is it possible to somehow map control+delete to do the same thing? (control is in the same location as fn on the full size keyboard)


You can do this with Karabiner with a private.xml such as this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <name>Forward Delete with ⌃⌫</name>
      KeyCode::DELETE, VK_CONTROL | ModifierFlag::NONE,
  • I didn't even need a custom XML, there is already a setting in Karabiner for that in the Change Delete Key section under Control+Delete to Forward Delete – Erik Aigner Dec 5 '14 at 6:11
