Delete key behavior on an APPLE keyboard in Solidworks

For any of you guys dual booting, VMs, whatever...running Solidworks in Windows on a Mac, my question is: Is there a way to make the delete key work the same in solidworks as it does on Windows?

 

As a little background, you may know that Macs have the Delete key where the Backspace key is on Windows KB. There is no backspace key on a Mac KB. So, Windows by default treats the delete key like backspace. So, when I'm in Solidworks and I go to delete something, I instinctively keep reaching for the delete key and Windows makes an error boop sound and nothing happens. Super frustrating!

 

Thanks for any help ya'll! And here's to hoping Dassualt someday just makes a native iOS version of SW already!!
