Using tilde and backslash in C9 terminal



Hi, I can’t use the tilde (~) and backslash (\) in my terminal. I can type those characters perfectly fine in google or other places.

What is the reason for them not showing up in the terminal?


which keyboard layout do you use?


Can you attach a screenshot of what happens?

Also, have a look at supported browsers and associated troubleshooting steps.


Thanks for the replies guys.

Keyboard layout got me investigating in the right direction. The issue was with my keyboard and the German language layout.

I need to hit [Ctrl]+[Alt] to access tilde and backslash but for some reason nothing was showing up. But when I hit the [Alt Gr] button, it works. Case resolved :slight_smile:
