    Tilde Key Not Working?


    So recently I tried to use my tilde key to input my name on steam, but it didnt do anything. Even hitting shift doesnt work. I have looked around and everyone says use your keyboard settings but I have, and I am on US Keyboard settings. Any Help would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. tilde key and hash

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting your query.

    Let me help to fix the issue.

    Let’s try simple troubleshooting steps and check if this helps. To switch the tilde key to different key, I would suggest you to go to the game settings and check if you can do it. If you are not able to switch the key please contact the game support
    team for further assistance.

    If you need further assistance with Windows in future, let us know and will be happy to help.

    Tilde Key Not Working?

    Tilde key doesn't work (software issue probably)

    Ah never mind, language switch button was set to tilde. There are 2 hotkeys for
    - keyboard language
    - input layout

    I thought it was one hotkey together lol. Strange is i set this, not long after reinstall. And tilde still worked at that point, have no idea what the heck, but glad it works now!
