I use web interface of Gmail and I would like to delete a conversation by pressing the DEL key on my keyboard. By default the delete shortcut is #.

I found the Keyboard Shortcuts section in Gmail settings. I know how to map this delete feature to any key except the DEL key. I tried to type DEL in the Custom keyboard shortcut section but it doesn't work.

Anyone knows how to do? Maybe DEL key cannot be mapped with a shortcut but I found no information about that.

  • No sorry this is not my question. The default shortcut works for me. But I want to replace it by the DEL key. – Maxbester Jun 9 at 13:16

    Yes Rubén I have read the answers and I know how to map this feature with any key except the DEL key. This is why my question was only related to the DEL key of the keyboard. I tried to type DEL in the Custom keyboard shortcut section but it doesn't work. – Maxbester Jun 9 at 13:53
