Standard German Keyboard Layout






The characters ² ³ { [ ] } \ @ € µ ~ are accessed by holding the Alt Gr key and tapping the other key.
The Alt key on the left will not access these additional characters.
The accent keys ^ ` ´ are dead keys (nothing happens until you type a second key).
Tap on an accent key once, let up, then tap on a vowel to produce accented characters. (ô á ù etc.)
Note that the semi-colon and colon are accessed by holding down the shift key (large arrow up).
