How can I type a backtick (`) or tilde (~) using my Italian keyboard on Windows 8?

Right now, I'm using ALT+96. Are there any other key combinations?

  • Maybe, I found the solution: sdrv.ms/16LZN8N You will install this keyboard, then remove any keyboard in control panel except this new keyboard.

Maybe, this is the best solution:

ITA-Dev Keyboard - Italian keyboard for developers

Install this keyboard, then remove any keyboard in Control Panel except this new keyboard.
Now you can type these chars:

` (AltGr + ')
~ (AltGr + ì)
À (AltGr + shift + a)
È (AltGr + shift + e)
Ì (AltGr + shift + i)
Ò (AltGr + shift + o)
Ù (AltGr + shift + u)
® (AltGr + r) registered
© (AltGr + c) copyright

  • @gsscoder, maybe now you have the opportunity to change the current Keyboard in traybar. Then, select "ITA" instead of "ITA-IT".

  • I've properly configured it via Time & language -> Keyboard but the icon deosn't appear in the traybar. I can't spot why. Any idea?

Tilde is Alt+ 126 for normal one (~), Alt+ 152` for small one (˜)

You can find other codes here link

  • In my Windows 10 workstation with standard Italian layout I use [Alt] + [126] for normal tilde ~ and [Alt] + [96] for backtick `` ` ``, which is consistent with the link you provide. Using [Alt] + [152] instead of a small tilde I get this: ÿ. By the way, your answer definitely deserves an upvote because it is the only one not requiring installing software with admin permissions (impossible when using common workstations in a company).
