-Asterisk: [SHIFT] + [8] — the number 8 key
-Underscore: [SHIFT] + [-] — on the right side of the number [0] key
-Tilde: [Shift] + [ ` ] — on the left side of the number [1] key
-Tick or Backtick: [ ` ] — on the left side of the number [1] key
-Backslash: [ \ ] — three keys to the right of the [P] letter key or above the [ENTER] key
