At Sign on a Spanish keyboard
The at sign, or ‘@’, is an essential symbol in modern digital communication. It is used in email addresses, social media handles, and various other online platforms. If you’re using a Spanish keyboard, however, the process of typing this symbol can be a bit confusing. In this post, we’ll explore a few different methods for typing the at sign on a Spanish keyboard.
Method 1: Use the Alt Code
One way to type the at sign on a Spanish keyboard is to use the Alt code.
Hold down the Alt key and press the number 64 on your numeric keypad (not the numbers on the top of your keyboard). Release the Alt key and the at sign should appear.
This method works on both Windows and Mac computers.
Method 2: Use the Keyboard Shortcut
Another method to type the at sign (@) on a Spanish keyboard is by using the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Alt + @. This combination of keys works on most Windows computers and it’s a quick way of getting the “@” symbol without having to use the numeric keypad or the character map.
Method 3: Use the On-Screen Keyboard
A third option for typing the at symbol on a Spanish keyboard is to use the On-Screen Keyboard. On Windows, open the Start menu and search for “On-Screen Keyboard.” Click on the “@” symbol on the on-screen keyboard and it will be added to the text field you have selected. On Mac you can use the “keyboard viewer” to add the “@” symbol by holding the option key and press the number 2.
Method 4: Use the Character Map [For Windows]
Here are the steps:
- Open the Start menu and search for “Character Map.”
- Click the “Character Map” program.
- Select the at sign (@) from the list of characters and click the “Select” button.
- Then click “Copy” to copy the symbol to your clipboard.
- Paste the at sign into any text field by pressing Ctrl + V (or Command + V on a Mac).
