For those who don't have the backslash '\' and the or sign '|' on their keyboard. Do this

Since I have a very odd keyboard it is missing alot of the necessary symbols I need for programming. I found a neat little trick to attain any symbol you want. The windows keyboard has something called 'alt codes' that letter type in any letter or symbol by holding 'alt + the number of the symbol or letter you want' e.g. the code for backslash would be 'alt+92'. The symbol will appear once you let 'alt' go. Here is a list of further shortcuts. Just hold 'alt' and type in any of the codes here to attain the symbol beside it. You can google more if you need anything else. Hope this helps someone.

Kind regards,

lol, that's both awesome and a shame cause an OK keyboard is only about $10.00. On the other hand Alien-ware makes some great stuff!

I wish I had known that earlier. The excitement of getting started with Python ASAP got to me and I just wanted everything like RIGHT NOW lol. live and learn.

I just noticed you have 15000+ points! wow. What do you do as a profession?

Wow, very cool. You put some effort into that. If it's not too personal, why do you have a keyboard that doesn't have the usual stuff?

Thanks! Just trying to help :)

So I gave my younger brother some money and told him to get me a 'good' enough keyboard but something not too pricey. Him being himself, he bought this 'super awesome extreme gaming keyboard with awesome lights (his words)'. It was so f'ing expensive (mind my French) and almost useless as it is basically just for gaming it has like 4 'shift' keys instead of 2, alot of automation keys around the keyboard and colourful LED lights everywhere.

Now I have a very neat looking PC and monitor but a overkill of a gaming keyboard which looks something like a Aeroplane cockpit lol -_-

He also got me this Alienware mouse that looks like a weapon from the future. It shoots a blue LED with every click -_-
