Because of differences between the operating systems, special keys and keyboard shortcuts used can be different between Macs and Windows computers.
The keys used to perform special tasks can vary between Mac and Windows. In many cases, merely substituting one special key for another will work.
|Key Used on Windows||Key Used on Mac|
|Control||Command (most cases) or Control|
|Backspace (delete previous letter)||Delete|
|Delete (delete next letter)||Fn+Delete|
|F1 through F12||
Fn+F1 through Fn+F12
On MacBook Pro laptops with the touchbar, hold down the Fn key to make the F1 through F12 keys appear on your touchbar.
|Shortcut Purpose||Windows Shortcut||Mac Shortcut|
|Move to Previous Word||Control+Left Arrow||Option+Left Arrow|
|Move to Next Word||Control+Right Arrow||Option+Right Arrow|
