On my MBP when I want to delete something I highlight it and press apple delete. Presto it's gone. On my imac I select it and delete.....nothing happens. The only way to delete something on the destop is to drag it to the trash.. Why is this...is there a setting I can change? I really like to use the keyboard more than the mouse. I wonder if this is a leopard thing? I look under keyboard shortcut setting and couldn't find anything.
