In Windows 7, how to make the delete key act as the backspace key?

share|improve this question
do you always want it to act this way or only in certain applications? For instance, in Explorer, Delete, will delete the current file while backspace moves up the foldertree a lovel. in notepad, Delete key removes character after cursor and backspapce the character before the cursor. Which behavior do you wish to modify – uSlackr Jun 17 '11 at 21:06
