Tilde on macBook air

Hi, I am working with Git and to run few commands I need tilde . But unfortunately I notice I can't find Tilde any where on my Norwegian key board for MacBook Air.

Shally, On the Apple Norwegian layout, tilde should be at Option plus ยจ, then Space.

are you using the extended or the normal keyboard? If you use the extended keyboard try holding OPTION and K and then a space. If you're using the normal one try holding OPTION and ยจ. I hope that helps.

Hi Everybody

Alt + ^ works for me as well, except in the treehouse console it does nothing. (Macbook pro, finnish keyboard)

Has anyone had the same issue and did you find a solution for it?
