You're calling out the Gradient tool at the bottom of the Tools panel. Your shortcut for this tool may have been changed:

That's the Last Gradient button at the bottom of the Tools, not the Gradient tool. My error.

Hi @Monika27108988xhqi,

 

Thanks for sharing the screenshots & reaching out. Would you mind checking the AI keyboard shortcuts, as suggested by Steve?
If that doesn't help, would you mind resetting the illustrator preferences (https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/troubleshoot-preference-issues.html)?
If that doesn't help, restart your system under safe mode (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/start-your-pc-in-safe-mode-in-windows-92c27cff-db89-8644...) and launch the Illustrator app only to check whether the delete key fills the object with the gradient or not.
If it does, would you mind confirming the Illustrator versions and sharing a screenshot of your system specification along with your keyboard layout, default language & input settings?

 

We'd be looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks,

Anshul Saini
