  2. If the previous key combination does not allow you to insert the at sign, you can try to execute the combination AltGr + Q; on some keyboards, especially laptop keyboards, this is the usual combination.
  3. If for some reason none of the above alternatives work for you and it is impossible for you to write the at sign, there is nothing to worry about, because you can still resort to other options. can try to do the combination Alt + 6 + 4 (these numbers would be pressed on the numeric keypad, located to the right of the keypad).
