    Hi Jean: On my MacBook Pro (English keyboard) the backslah "\" is directly above the enter/return key.

    Don't feel bad we all have computer problems sometimes, the key is right above the Return (or Enter) key.

     

    Hope this helps!

    I would get an external keyboard if I were you, to make things a little less difficult.

    Hi Stedman,

     

    I'm from Belgium, and the keyboard is know as a French keyboard.

     

    But why are they diffrent ? French = French NO ?

    Strangely enough, maybe not. I have found 2 pictures on the 'net stating they are "French" keyboards. One shows the back-slash as being above the Return/Enter key and the other shows the back-slash as being in the top left corner, immediately left of the "1" key.

    So I guess hold option and shift & try one of those, or command and shift, or control and shift?

     

    Try a few combinations.
