You appear to have the wronk keyboard selected,

go into control panel and select "Regional and Language" setting and select the correct language keyboard. Usuallt this will be the US keyboard. You appear to have the English UK keyboard selected.

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)

Please ,how can i type a back slash symbol


if you can't find the backslash on your keyboard, you can always use the so called ASCII code. It sound complicate, but it is simple: press and hold the left ALT key and press one at a time the following digits form the NUMERICAL KEYBOARD: 0 9 2 . Now release the ALT key and the backslash appears.

There is a code like that for all characters and digits oin the keyboard

On the Zippy keyboard and probably lots of others there are two methods of accessing different symbols on keys. other than the normal,caps lock and numlock options.

Holding either 'shift key' will type the upper symbols on key. holding 'alt Gr' key will type the 3rd symbol on a key if more than 2 on key. such as ` ¬ ¦

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?.
