    `¬¦
    Press it for the first one, hold shift for the second, hold Alt Gr for the third.
    (I have a UK keyboard layout, it may be different)

    why
    It only has 2 options for me... ` and ~

    I guess it's the american standard... because shift + 4 is $ and 5 is %

    yeah, but it does have the ie logo, so the manufacturer assumes you use ie... doesnt matter

    my dad works for nintendo.
    he, what are the combinations?

    usually is:
    press key for bottom left character
    press shift+key for top character
    press control+alt+key (alt Gr is both controll and alt in 1) for bottom right character

    It's here so you never ever press the f1 key, to keep it working for when you get this error:

    i got a similair key next to z, but its the < and >

    fif you import your keyboard?
    not showing up the correct characters means you selected the wrong language (in the language bar) for it

    my dad works for nintendo.
    funny thing: when i was a kid, and my keyboard stopped working, my dad bought the most awfull terrible thing that existed
    i remember it was so tin and slim pressing a key made the whole keyboard "hop" it was so floppy and had a really weird layout, for example the delete key was just 1 square size (the same size as a letter key)

    one day i got tired and decided to use my spoiled kid privilege.. broke the thing in half on purpose and dad bought a very sturdy and very cool keyboard...
