    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!

    Hi,

     

    My apologies to both of you, but i should have mention i'm using an AZERTY keaboard (french speaking person !).

     

    And on the AZERTY keyboard,...NO backslash ! Verry stupid, but not from me !

     

    So, there must be a key combination the have a backslash on the screen no?

     

    Regard,

    Thanks for your reply, AusieDJ, but it's not working.

     

    I'm afraid the European keyboard is different versus the Canadian ?

     

    Any idea where those characters are somewhere explained on the net ?

     

    Regards,

    Thanks for your reply, Stedman, but NO WAY !

     

    This is really frustrating.

     

    Thanks anyway.

    Hi: For clarification. Is it a Canadian French or France French keyboard?

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

    Hi AussieDJ,

     

    Its not abad idea, in fact !

    But to me, backslash is much moe useful than the several stupid keys at the top, like the music keys and other keys ...

    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.
