Default Cannot delete text

When I select text in Word document and press Delete key, text does not get
deleted and instead I am asked to confirm y/n to delete by pressing on key
for letter y on the keyboard in order to delete the selected text.

Thanks

This is caused by WordPerfect option settings. Go to ToolsOptionsGeneral
and uncheck
"Help for WordPerfect Users" and "Navigation keys for WordPerfect Users."
