Lenovo N42 - how to type a backslash?

Hello. I recently purchased a Lenovo N42 chromebook. It has a key on it with 3 symbols: hash, backslash and tilde. I can type a hash by pressing the key, a tilde by holding down SHIFT and pressing the key but I have no idea how to get it to type a backslash. Please could someone tell me how I can type a backslash - it is driving me crazy!

Hi donturner!


Welcome to the community forums.


Could you try the combination of Alt+0092 or Alt+92 and check if it will give you the backslash symbol when you type it?


Let us know how it goes.
