The Backspace key is used for correcting mistakes. It deletes one character to the left of the cursor. The Delete key deletes the character to the right of the cursor, which has the effect of deleting one character ahead. Ctrl+X has two modes of operation. If text is highlighted, Ctrl-X follows the Windows standard by “cutting” the text to the clipboard. If no text is highlighted, Ctrl-X deletes from the cursor back to the beginning of the line; or if the cursor is at the beginning of the line, it deletes the line above.
