Re: How to type at @ with a german version keybord

alt + 64 is the universal alternative.
Only annoying if you have a laptop keyboard

Re: How to type at @ with a german version keybord

Mine was purchased here in Basel, whether it is "German" vs "Swiss German" I don't know for certain but I imagine it is the latter...

For me, @ is alt gr + 2 (shift yields ")

Re: How to type at @ with a german version keybord

Or you just change the keyboard language to whatever layout you are used to and magically everything is where it's supposed to be.

Re: How to type at @ with a german version keybord

I once had to type with a French keyboard...I couldn't spell for shy*e! I felt like a dyslexic typist with tourette. (and no, I don't type with a French now )

Keep in mind there is the swiss-german keyboard, and the swiss-french keyboard, which of course differ in themselves and also differ from the German and the French keyboards.

ps--this thread is right up there with 'how to boil water' thread.
