How do i write the "\" character with the spanish keyboard layout? With the US layout it should be at the left of the "z" but that key does nothing and it's at the opposite side of the keyboard (to the right).
Edit: Right control + ALT keeps control stuck and i need to reset.

Also found that right ctrl keeps control stuck and reset is required. Alt Gr kills the keyboard, reset needed again. My laptop has a spanish keyboard as well.

Something i forgot it's ms-dos 3.30. Same with US layout, right alt kills the keyboard and right ctrl leaves control locked.
And i never could type \ with the spanish layout.
Edit: broken keyboard on all XT machines, don't know since when, 86Box works.
