Backslash not working in console from Treehouse but fine in other applications

Backslash not working in console from Treehouse but fine in other applications. What are some other workarounds. Touch keyboard that comes with Windows 10 does not work and obviously we cannot cut and paste in the console environment.

Ok. I have a solution for those having the same difficulty. Although one should not have to do this. I am living and working in Mexico City and my LapTop is configured for Mexican Spanish which is fine as I also type in Spanish as well as in English. I had to configure the English US keyboard and then use the key with the closing curly bracket. Hope this comment helps someone having the same issue.
