I need to use a character from my keyboard, the button I need to use has 3 characters on it, pressing it produces "`", holding shift and pressing the button produces "¬", how do I get the third character on this button?
Thanks for any help.
Hold down Alt Gr and press the key ¦
Or hold down both CTRL and ALT and then press ¦ (ALT GR is equivalent to the CTRL+ALT key combination)
Many thanks for the replies.
Holding down Ctrl and Alt Gr together and pressing the key produes this character "¦"
But the character shown on my key, the one I need to use is a vertical straight line without a break.
On my keyboard this character is in the upper case of the \ key and holding shift and that key does this - is that what you want? |||
Lol, thank-you for that.
My new keyboard is marked wrong, the ¦ and | are marked on the wrong keys.
bturner. Have you set up the PC for UK Keyboard?
See Here if not:
UK keyboard set up
I have just tried pressing all the keys and also while using the shift key and everything is correct except for the | and ¦
The keyboard is set up correctly in "start, control panel, region and language but I have saved the link you provided just in case I ever need to change the settings on a future keyboard.
All the best.
I think you can lever off a key cover and swap them if only 2 are involved.
Quoting lotvic: "ALT GR is equivalent to the CTRL+ALT key combination"
lotvic, thank you for that one - I never knew that!!!
Again, thank you
Just as a point of interest, having just tried typing the said characters, my keyboard produces the ¦ and the | the wrong way around too!
However, can't change the keys around as the other characters on the keys would be wrong! Still, not to worry. I have never used them yet!
Interesting post - thanks everyone
My HP UK keyboard has them the wrong way round as well!!!!!!
