Can't fill in email adress

If I am trying to enter the @ sign for my email adress in the git config in the treehouse workspace, nothing happens. I already tried to copy it from somewhere else, but that doesn't work either. I am using a German keyboard layout.

I think the solution for this issue is this...

git config --global user.email "Your username"

I have the same problem, my solution:

@ press "alt" + "64 (on your numberpad)" = @

~ "alt" + "126 (on your numberpad)" = ~

What if you don't have a numpad?
