I am using Photoshop CS6 Extended in Windows 10. In the top menu under View there is a Lock Guides option. The shortcut keyboard combination for this is mentioned as Ctrl+Alt+Ñ. I tried everything like Num Lock and Caps Lock, but I couldn't find how to press Ñ.

How to press Ctrl+Alt+Ñ?


  • This might actually be a broken shortcut. Have you tried changing it? Right now I can't think of any keyboard layout I know that has Ñ on there without requiring a modifier key. If you have the modifier, you might just have to use that while holding down Ctrl+Alt and then continue pressing N. – Mario Dec 16 '16 at 7:30
  • @Mario No, I didn't change nothing. It is the default shortcut keyboard combination. I don't know about any modifier key on keyboard too. – user31782 Dec 16 '16 at 7:32
  • In my Photoshop CS6 (Windows 10), the default shortcut for Lock Guides seems to be Ctrl+Alt+Semicolon. Perhaps give that a try. – MJH Dec 16 '16 at 8:04
  • @MJH I am using the extended version. In this it is written Ctrl+Alt+Ñ not semicolon. – user31782 Dec 16 '16 at 8:18

It should be Alt+Ctrl+;

Thats what works with the US / EN-US language settings, I think youre running spanish version of it?

  • The language of photoshop I am using is English not spanish. It says version 13.0 x32 Extended. – user31782 Dec 16 '16 at 11:02
  • @user31782 - What keyboard layout are you using though? – Ramhound Dec 16 '16 at 14:51
  • @Ramhound I don't know what it's layout is called. It is DELL KB216 Wired Multimedia USB Keyboard in India. – user31782 Dec 16 '16 at 15:21
  • Please update your question and list the keyboard layouts you have installed. – Ramhound Dec 16 '16 at 15:24
