Windows: Grid views - [Delete] should remove a picture from an album.  [Alt]+[Backspace] should delete a photo from the CC catalog. When I use either in a grid view, they both return focus to the grid and I can immediately use the short cut again. 

When in Loupe(Detail view) with a film strip at the bottom. [Delete] will remove a picture from the CC catalog. It prompts a dialog that, when completed, returns you to the Loupe view. The [Delete] key is active again immediately without needing a mouse click. 

Can you give us more detail and step-by-step instructions?

Also, did you install Lightroom CC 2.0.1 that was released earlier today?  You should probably do that before checking.

After 5-10 minute work in Lightroom, the Del key stops working. Very annoying. I have to click the image on the filmstrip to make the Delete key working. Definitely the filmstrip loses the focus and doesn't receive the Del key event. I have to restart Lightroom to get the Del key working again. It's really annoying to restart Lightroom every 15 minutes...

Not same as original issue.

Please reference the new conversation here: Delete key stops working and Lightroom has to restart to restore functionality.
