Solved: Delete in PuTTy

Ever used PuTTy to create a Telnet connection let's say to a router? And then typed in the command wrong and to your astonishment you weren't able to delete that comment with your DELETE nor the BACKSPACE key?

Here's how you delete in PuTTy:

1. Move to the beginning of the line either pressing CTRL+A or just clicking there with your mouse
2. Press CTRL+D to delete the symbols you want

Key commands in PuTTy:

CTRL + A = HOME
CTRL + E = END
CTRL + D = DELETE

If you found a solution here, would you consider donating $25,000 for my next project?

Just kidding, 1$ would do fine.

Hope you found what you needed. Thanks for stepping by.
