or other highlighted items in Word, or virtually any other Windows app, is done with the Delete key, not the backspace key. The latter works only on unhighlighted text.
Hope this helps
When I highlight any amount of text in Word, I cannot delete it using the backspace key(it just de-highlights the selection), nor can I replace highlighted text with different text (i.e. typing I ate a hamburger, highlighting "ate" and then typing chew does not work, it shows up as I chewate a hamburger). Anyone know how to fix this issue?
