What is wrong here, is that you have an incorrectly selected keyboard.

For example, you have a UK machine, and it is set to USA keyboard.

Goto START / CONTROL PANEL / REGIONAL AND LANGUAGE SETTINGS. Under each tab (menu), be sure that all the country, language, and keyboard settings match the country you are in.

Then reboot, all should be fine.

Erik.

How to type backslash key?


on a standard keyboard should be key under backspace key

May 19, 2015 | Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Backslash key


On most standard English keyboards the backslash key is located above the "Enter" or "Return" key. If your keyboard has been damaged, you can still copy and paste a backslash symbol that someone else has typed.

\ (backslash)
/ (forward slash)

You may have reassigned the keys. Go to Control Panel and reset in Region and Language > Keyboard.

Cant type backslash


Assume you can't get @ to work properly also.
If so then your Windows is set to the wrong region - probably USA keyboard layout.
Goto Control Panel / Clock Language and Region / Change Location
then check all tabs are for UK (except Admin tab - no need to alter)
UK - or where your PC came from

How do I access the question mark


All you have to do is hold the SHIFT key down and then press the BACKSLASH (/) key. This should allow you to access your question mark character.

Here is a link to an image of an ACER Keyboard:

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.

You can see the QUESTION MARK / BACKSLASH key near the lower right hand corner of the keyboard in that image.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

I cannot get backslash on logiboard keyboard


1) With your NUMLOCK on, hold the ALT key down and type 092 on your numeric keypad.  When you have NUMLOCK on, ALT and a 3-figure digit gives you special characters.  092 is the backslash on UK and Spanish keyboards, so hopefully it'll work for you.  If you get something different, you'll have to try different numbers until you find it

or 

2) In Start --> Programs --> Accessories there's a program called Character Map.  This gives you a list of available characters

or

3) copy and paste this one:  \

For a workaround for time being you can use the OSK (on screen keyboard to get a backslash) which can be accessed by pressing the Windows key and the letter "U", or you can go to start > Run and type "osk". Meanwhile I will try to get a proper resolution for this issue. Wait for my reply.

Cannot get backslash (\) character to display


To get a backslash, you need to print the upper ascii character 92 (decimal). On most machines you can get upper ascii characters by holding down the Alt key and typing the decimal value on the numeric keypad. On the little IBM machine I'm typing this on, there is no numeric keypad, but if I switch on numlock (by doing shift-scroll-lock) the j-k-l keys become 1-2-3 etc. Now id I hold down Alt and type 92 (i.e.keys 9-k), this is what I get: \ Howzzat?.
