When right clicking a file in the Nautilus file manager, there doesn't seem to be a way to delete files using a keyboard shortcut. Here's how.
Simply press CTRL+DEL to move the selected file(s) to the trash (without any confirmation dialog). Pressing SHIFT+DEL deletes the selected files immediately (with a confirmation dialog).
