Re: cannot find Back Quote ` on american keyboard

Did you think that "american keyboard" was a
useful description of anything?

What's to the left of "1"/"!"?

Sorry, I mean US keyboard.
I've tried already different combinations and it still doesn't work.

BTW This is command shell of SCO 5.0.7 Unix, started in RAM.

That's better? (Perhaps a little, but not
much.) There's more than one "US keyboard"
in the world, too.

Does that change your keyboard's keycaps?

What, exactly, do you mean by "cannot find"?
Is the key missing, or does the right key not
do the right thing, or what?

What, exactly, are you doing? What, exactly,
happens when you do it?

Still wondering...

I have no idea which keyboard layout uses SCO in a command shell by default, it seems to be US.

The right key seems to not do the right thing.

Apparently, "exactly" means something to you
which is different from what it means to me.

Hi,

it seems to be the upper most left key:

If not, you should describe your problem more detailed, like Steven told you.

Re: cannot find Back Quote ` on american keyboard

On my "US" keyboard, the single back quote - ` is to the upper left hand part of the main chunk of keys, surrounded by the 1/!, Q and Tab keys to the "East," "SouthEast," and "South" respectively.
