Hello,

I switch between US and French keyboard because I lose the "@" sign on the French keyboard. I got advice that the "@" is the zero key and still, I cannot get it to work.

Please teach me how to make the shortcut for the French keyboard or tell me what issue may be preventing my "@" sign from appearing when I type.

Thanks!

Just for the record, which Mac is this you are using? Might make a difference with the keys.

Try holding down the OPTION key and pressing the \ key. Worked here but mine is not a MBP. The \ key should be above the Return key.
