Command+Delete in the Finder

(Long-time reader, first-time poster…)

My problem is using command+backspace when trying to edit a file name or clear a search term in Finder. For reasons beyond my comprehension, Finder always interprets this as "Move to Bin". I would think since I have an active text area that command+backspace should be captured and actioned by the text area. I have been trying to break this muscle memory for over a year and failed. Please help!
