On UK/US/Canadian monolingual/Dvorak keyboards, it’s the key to the left of the number 1 On Latin American keyboards, it’s the key to the right of the letter P On French keyboards, it’s the accent grave to the left of the return key If you’re not sure where to find the backtick key on your keyboard, you can use the Unicode number for it instead (0060). On Windows: Hold down the Alt key and type 0060 using the numeric keypad On a Mac: Choose the Unicode Hex Input menu from your menu bar (if you don’t know what i’m talking about, see a great explanation here) Hold down the Option key and type 0060 I hope this is helpful :) October 20, 2007 at 9:20 pm #155704 timethiefMember This is indeed a helpful post judy.

And I can’t seem to be able to do it the Alt+0060 way either because the laptop doesn’t have a numeric keypad. What should I do?
