To delete an anchor point:

Select the Pen tool or the Delete Anchor Point tool and click over the anchor point. Note: The Pen tool changes to Delete Anchor Point tool as you position it over an anchor point.

Select the point with the Direct Selection tool and click Remove Selected Anchor Points in the Control panel.

 

Doesn't f***** work!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And you post these instructions like it's natively set up like that you mf*****. I can't find any instructions on how to get that tool in the pen area. Thats my fault Adobe I should just know shouldn't I? Wasting my time with your product

These are primarily user Fora, so you are mainly talking to fellow users of Adobe products.

But that is probably just as well considering your outburst. 

 

Also you may want to familiarize yourself with how to take proper screenshots and post them (using the »Insert Photos«-button) instead of attaching them.

Please provide a meaningful description of your problem and the screenshots to illustrate it.
