So I bought the mini slim wired mac keyboard for my pc since it saves desk space and I like the quality of it. It is the same as the wireless slim compact keyboard except its usb powered. Only thing is no DELETE key on this mac keyboard. So does anyone know how to I do a control alt delete function on this mac keyboard? Thanks

Its right next to the fn key.

 

It looks like a tag with an x in it.

delete (pc) = fn-delete (mac)

 

ctrl-alt-delete (pc) = fn-ctrl-alt-delete (mac)

 

The "delete" key on a Mac keyboard is "backspace" on a PC keyboard.

Equivalent to the "backspace" key on a PC keyboard.

FN + delete  = windows delete

delete = Windows backspace

Ok thanks for the responses but I tried fn control plus delete on my mac keyboard with windows 7 and no result. I even tried other variations possible. My mac keyboard is a swiss version but it should not make any difference. anyways here is my EXACT photo of  my keyboard. still has back space and fn control and alt just like usa keyboard ( i am in usa btw )

Mine is the photo someone posted earlier.  And, it works just fine in Win7, but that's using bootcamp.  It may be the driver I'm using.  I haven't tested it on my other windows (only) machines.
