How do you get the at symbol on a European keyboard?
The US layout, where the @ symbol shares the 2 key is the most popular place; sometimes its Shift + 2 but if that doesn't work try Alt + Shift + 2 or Alt Gr + 2 (Alt Gr key is to the right of the spacebar).
Press and hold the ALT key and type the number 0163 to make a Pound symbol. Use unicode Pound symbol in a html document or copy paste the character.
- The UK keyboard has 1 more key than the U.S. keyboard (UK=62, US=61, on the typewriter keys) The Alt key to the right of the space bar is replaced by an AltGr key. The # symbol is replaced by the £ symbol and a 102nd key is added next to the Enter key to accommodate the displaced # € is produced by AltGr + 4.

- The Euro sign or symbol (€) is not difficult to insert into a Microsoft Word document. To type the Euro symbol (€) in Microsoft Word for Windows, press CRTL + ALT + E.
Press the alt key to the right of the space bar ( alt gr ), and the key above the enter key (which should typically be hash on a US keyboard set to UK input - but on your laptop it is actually the key!). This should provide a backslash!
- Keyboards, especially laptop keyboards tend to have different arrangements for their front and back slash keys, but you should have both on your keyboard. On mine, the front slash (/) is usually located down bellow the " key next to the shift key and the backslash () is usually located just above the enter key.
- The slash (/)—sometimes called a slant, a solidus, a stroke, or a virgule—is a commonly employed symbol in the English language. Whatever you want to call this piece of punctuation, its role in English has greatly changed over time.
- The slash ( / ), also known as the virgule, has several uses, most of which should be avoided in formal writing. Never use a backslash ( ) in place of a slash.
Press Alt with the appropriate letter. For example, to type € (euro symbol), press Alt + E ; to type £ (pound symbol), press Alt + L . Stop the mouse over each button to learn its keyboard shortcut. Alt + click a button to copy a single character to the clipboard.
