What's the shortcut for TILDE using a mac keyboard running on windows 7?

Does ALT+N, Space work, as in Mac OS X? – mouviciel Aug 27 '09 at 15:19
Do you want just a tilde (~) or a tilde over an N (ñ, Ñ)? – Doug Harris Aug 27 '09 at 15:23
What type of hardware? PC or Mac under Bootcamp? – mouviciel Aug 27 '09 at 15:40
What keyboard layout? – Daniel Beck May 23 '11 at 8:37

Try holding alt and typing 0126 on the numeric keypad

This is for the bare ~ . If you need Ñ use 0209 and if you need ñ type 0241. You can discover more using charmap.exe

Apparently this requires a registry setting. Mine was enabled by default on XP, so check this if it doesn't work:

Alas, this appears to require a registry setting. It was already set on my computer, but some readers report that this method didn't work for them, and this is probably why. If you don't know what the registry is, please don't try this. Under HKEY_Current_User/Control Panel/Input Method, set EnableHexNumpad to "1". If you have to add it, set the type to be REG_SZ.

Try Alt+n (hold down the right 'Alt/Option' key and hit n).

Turn on the language bar (right-click on the clock, and select toolbars->language bar) Then select English (United states) instead of english (united kingdom). That will give you a tilde...
