Macbook Pro Keyboard Missing Keys List

PS: New Post based on the comments below. Will make things more more simpler. 
After a long painful unsuccessful search on the Internet for finding position of “~” tilt key on German Macbook Pro Keyboard, I tried hit & trial with every keys with combination with ALT, CMD and SHIFT and finally I found the key. So, I decided to write a blog with the different shortcut positions of important keys which is not displayed on Keyboard. Here goes the “Macbook Pro Keyboard Missing Keys List” which are commonly needed for programmers….

\ Backslash – ALT + SHIFT + 7

~ Tilt – ALT + N

{ Open Brace – ALT + 8

} End Brace – ALT + 9

[ Open Bracket – ALT + 5

] End Bracket – ALT + 6

| Pipe – ALT + 7

^ Hat – ALT + SHIFT + 6

And just for fun…. :)

 Apple Sign – ALT + SHIFT + “+” (plus key)

And for FYI:


Option Key in macbook pro is generally “alt” key.

Hope this post help you from painful search on Keys shortcut.

    A very easy way to see all of the key combinations and characters is to go to System Preferences, select Keyboard, and then check the box that says show Character & Keyboard Viewer in menu bar. Once this is selected you can click on the icon in the menu bar next to your battery status and select show keyboard viewer. this will give you an onscreen keyboard that shows what symbols are available when you push special keys like the alt, command, and control keys.
