Hello Community Members...

I have a Qwerty keyboard and DO NOT know how to use the three (3) icons on the keypads...

` ¬ one missing and $ 4 one missing

I just pressed the keys and then used shift key for the other symbol how do I get the third one...?

Also under menus/sub-menus there are underscores (think) to press a combination of keys to open that menu !

Help VALUED with My present enquiry...

As Always Best

The other is a character map that you can copy paste.

Hello Arnold and ALL Community Members...

Thank You for a reply on My mis-understanding...

Define "Broken"...

Do You mean broken as a software issue which CAN BE FIXED (As You well KNOW Arnold LOL)

Or by your statement "can be replaced" broken as physically which then needs to be replaced

The 3rd symbol can be created by pressing Alt,Ctrl and the corresponding key. The AltGr key at the right of the space bar is the same as Alt+Ctrl.

If you see underlined characters in menus, this (usually) means you can press that character together with Alt for direct access. Often you see underlined characters only while pressing the Alt key, so missing underlines does not mean you cannot use shortcuts.
