Hi all...


A friend of mine had to reformat his hard drive and reinstall all the programs. He called me because now he can\'t write the symbol @

He has a Mexican keyboard.

The following options don\'t seem to work


Gr Alt + 2

Ctrl + Alt + 2


Any ideas?

Thanks for your help!.

Use ANSI-Code Jan 9, 2003

Alt + 064 (numeric block), means you need to hold Alt pressed and enter \"064\" with your numeric pad on your keyboard. Works on every type of keyboard

ASCII code as a workaround Jan 9, 2003

No idea about the combination on a Mexican keyboard - it\'s \'Alt Gr\'+Q on my European one.


What you can do as a workaround is to use the ASCII code: \'@\' is ASCII character 64 - hold down the \'Alt\' key, type 64 on the numeric keypad and release \'Alt\'.
