How to delete or use the delete key on mac

If you are new on MacOS, you might find immediately that the delete key is not present or is not in the same place as in a Windows PC. Also, it has a different behavior in some cases.

Delete Key

The Delete key on Mac is represented with an arrow (backspace) or simply with the “delete” word. It does and doesn’t act the same way as the Backspace and Delete keys on a PC. Normally hitting Delete on a Mac will work as a Backspace key. To Forward Delete, normal action of the Delete key on a PC, you have to hold down the fn key and then hit the Delete key. To Delete a File or something once selected sometimes the Mac Delete keys Deletes it and at other times it does nothing other then give you a Chime/Sound no matter what other key you hold down. This is the case with deleting files in Finder. As in Windows the delete key actually deletes whatever is selected all the time.

‘pip’ is not recognized as an internal or external command

In case your “pip” command is not recognized by Windows CMD, then most probably the Python Scripts path is not set in the system variables. pip is installed with Python 2.7.9 or later:

You need to add the path of your pip installation to your PATH system variable. By default, pip is installed to C:\Python34\Scripts\pip (pip now comes bundled with new versions of python), so the path “C:\Python34\Scripts” needs to be added to your PATH variable.

To check if it is already in your PATH variable, type echo %PATH% at the CMD prompt

To add the path of your pip installation to your PATH variable, you can use the Control Panel or the setx command. For example:

setx PATH "%PATH%;C:\Python34\Scripts"

Note: According to the official documentation, “[v]ariables set with setx variables are available in future command windows only, not in the current command window”. In particular, you will need to start a new cmd.exe instance after entering the above command in order to utilize the new environment variable.
