How do I get the concatenation symbol on an older PC? I tried the + symbol and the challenge task wouldn't accept it.

I can't figure out how to get the double lines that I need...wasn't sure if it was the age of my computer or my lackluster Google search skills

The concatenation symbol must be the two vertical bars. That symbol is usually is on the same key as the backslash (\), on the far right of the keyboard.

As a last resort, you could copy and paste it from here :point_right: ||
