Cant figure out how to get it off the little blue symbols


Either the "blue" coloured 'FN' is _stuck_ in the "down" position, or you have accidentally activated the "Sticky Keys" Windows "accessibility" tool.

With "Sticky Keys", you press keys just _one_ at a time, e.g., CTRL then ALT then DELETE instead of pressing multiple keys (SHIFT and '8') at the same time.

Restart, in order to turn-off "Sticky Keys".

Or, "exercise" the 'FN' key, until it "unsticks" itself.

The delete problem you described sounds application specific. For example in Windows Explorer, if you just click on the Delete key, you will only send the deleted object into the Recycle Bin where it can be restored if required. If you want to really delete an item, you click on Shift-Delete key.

Therefore, to answer your question, yes it should be possible to hit just the Delete key but for certain applications like Windows explorer, you will not really be deleting the item you selected.

Holding down the right-side SHIFT key has activated the "Sticky Keys" feature in Windows -- designed for physically-handicapped people who cannot press more than one key at a time.

Check the Speech settings in System Preferences. Your delete key may have been selected as a Listening Key. Disable Speakable Items. See if that helps.
