Default How do I make an @ symbol on a spanish keyboard?

I'm trying to set up the internet access on the computer in our parish's hispanic center, and I need to type the @ symbol. The computer there has a spanish keyboard.

On an english keyboard, the @ symbol is made by pressing shift + 2. On the spanish keyboard, this keystroke produces the " symbol. This is correct according to the keyboard, as the " symbol appears above the 2 on this key. The @ symbol is also on this key, though, to the right of the 2.

I've tried pressing every modifier keystroke I could think of in combination with 2, but nothing I've tried produces the @ symbol. Surely someone here must know the secret?

Thank you.

Try Alt+2

If not, then Alt+Q

If you still have no luck, try Alt+ everything else

(When I use a Spain Spanish keyboard, it's Alt+2. Mexican and Colombian Spanish keyboards use Alt+Q)

Alt + 0064

That worked for me. Try it.

(Alt +0065 forms the A symbol, so if it is a different number on yours [which I doubt] then just find the code for A and go back one.)
