The key combination can vary depending on what language and keyboard files you're using. However, the easiest way might be to use Windows own Character Mapper to copy the underscore to the clipboard.

Run CHARMAP (in XP, from Start menu -> Run and in Vista from Start button -> start search)

Find the underscore character, and copy it to the clipboard. Go to where you need it and use CTRL-V to paste the copied underscore into wherever it is you need it.

How do I apply an underscore in an email address?

On most keyboards, the underscore is Shift+Hyphen (usually to the right of 0 on the standard keyboard's row above the QWERTY keys). If you want to underline an email address and your email program supports HTML, you can use <span style="text-decoration: underline;"> </span>. (You could alternatively make the email address a mail-to link, <a href=""></a> .)

I hope this helps.

I'm trying to underscore on the internet for a job title that is underscored

This depends on the edition features of the system you are using. Some sites allow underscore others do not. You can try Ctrl+U to start the underlining and then Ctrl+U to end it. Sometimes the code is <u> to start and </u> to end (or some sort of embedded code). If the site has an editor you may be able to find a help screen for formatting by pressing F1

I have a laptop with Swiss French keyboard. Today I have installed windows 7 in English. I need to find the " undescore " because my email address separates my firstname and my lastname with underscore...

Alt 8 is the underscore on the Swiss French keyboard, but I would think if you loaded Windows 7 English it would use the English layout which is "shift" and the key to the right of "0". Worst case, you can use the On-Screen Keyboard which is under Control Panel> Ease of Access Center> "Start On-Screen Keyboard". Once you have it open, right click on it on the "Task bar" and pin it to the task bar for easy future access.

I need to know how to underscore something.

Which program are you using to create the text or document? Microsoft Word?

If you are using microsoft word, wordpad, notepad, microsoft works, etc. if you look at the top of the window usually you will see the letters B, I, U which stand for Bold, Italicize or Underline. You can highlight text that you've already created then select the U to underline the highlited text. Or you can click the U and it will underline everything you type until you click it again.

I was composing an email through hotmail and tried to use the underline with the underscore and maybe I pressed the CTL button or 'up arrow' button??? don' thanks

Hi there,
While composing email in hotmail you can use the toolbar under the subject bar
here you can see the formatting bar, with Fonts>Size>and formatting settings B>Bold I> Italic> U>Underline
so when you press the respective buttons by selecting text it will become underline and you don't need to have underscore for underlining

If you require more assistance feel free to reply to this post

I want to record someone e-mail address.They have a dash under the line not between the words.How do I do this on my hp probook?

Do not worry about the underline (dash under the words) it is not of any significance when you record or copy and paste the email address. This means that the computer / operating system has identified it as a email address and automatically hyperlinked so that if you click on it it will directly open a mail client.

example: is having a underline which need not be noted it just has to be noted down without the underlink. As you have well noticed _between words is of significance and has to be noted down without any mistake but not the line below.
