The "Delete" key no longer deletes an image in Adobe Bridge 2017. I have to now right-click on the image and select "delete". Not a huge issue but clearly a step backwards.....or a bug.

I experienced that too but "Delete" seems to be working again now on my Mac running on Yosemite.

Try deleting your Prefs and then re-booting your computer.

I've just had a long Chat with customer care about this, as I still can't get the delete button to work (get message that device is busy) and they say this bug was fixed. When you say delete Prefs, you mean in Bridge CC? and then restart the computer and reset the preferences? It's no big deal if you only have a handful of photos but when I'm working I can have hundreds and need a bulk delete - manually on the iPhone in the middle of a job is a nightmare. Thanks for any help here. I'm using Mac OS X Yosemite, 10.10.5 and iPhone 6, latest version of software (Dec 2016).
