I have a equals symbol that Mathematica won't let me delete. I have a screenshot of the equals symbol in Mathematica. How do I delete the first orange equals symbol in Mathematica? I have tried the delete key and Mathematica won't let me delete the orange equals symbol?

enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ You ended up creating a different styled cell than the one you want. Just delete the entire cell itself and make a new "Input" or "Text" cell via the standard shortcuts. The thing that I'm sure tripped you up is that this new cell is created if you press = in an empty Input cell or between cells. $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 Aug 22 '18 at 2:23

You should be able to hit Backspace (Delete on MacOS) or = twice. If these don't work, report what:

CurrentValue[{StyleDefinitions, "WolframAlphaShort", StyleKeyMapping}]

{"=" -> "WolframAlphaLong", "Backspace" -> "Input"}

evaluates to on your computer.
