American layout keyboard - British keyboard language - how do I get a "backslash"???
Posted on 2002-07-03
I have bought an American layout keyboard, but want to keep the installed language as British, which means that I don't have to swap brains when I am at home, trying to remind myself that the # is now over here or the " is now over there!! In other words, I want to use the keyboard as if it were a British layout, not according to what is on the keys - that way, it works the same as any normal British keyboard layout (I can stick my own label on the one or two keys that are different). However, the one character that I cannot get is a backslash! Does anybody know how I get a backslash with that configuration? I'd really appreciate it.
I know this sounds daft, but there really is method in my madness - trust me!!
Thanks in anticipation
