How can you type the symbols that generally aren't visible on the keyboard? A simple way is holding the Alt key and typing the number for the symbol. You'll find these "Alt shortcuts" below. Note: On Windows, you can always use the Character Map tool to type various symbols and letters you can't find here.

First, ensure Num Lock is pressed on your keyboard. To type these symbols, hold Alt key, then type the number with numpad. The character will appear after you release Alt key.

You're welcome. In my use, the keyboard shortcut Alt + Shift causes accidental change of keyboard layout from time to time.

Are you sure Windows is on the correct keyboard layout (it's on on the bottom right of the screen, left to the date-time).

As a workaround, if you have a Num Pad on the keyboard, you can put a forward slash from there too.
