Any clue about how to configure keyboard language in Hyper app?

nanythery profile image Nadine M. Thêry ・1 min read

So I am dealing with the hyper shell app, and I don't see how can I change the keyboard language (if that is possible). I usually use a Spanish keyboard.
However, it doesn't seem to be a matter of the language completely, since arrow keys don't have the same function either.
If this is a silly question, can you please leave me some resources where I can find out more about keyboard distribution or keyboard in hyper/cmd?

Thanks a lot!

Do you mean this hyper?

Are you using macOS, Windows or linux?

Can you be more specific about the problem?

  • what are you trying to do?
  • what happens when you do it?
  • what do you expect to happen?


Yes, that Hyper.
It is Windows, configured with Git cmd.
I am trying to write commands, specifically the ~ symbol. I just do not know how to write it.
I think the "problem" is what I said. That the keyboard is in English by default. Just want to know if there is any way to change the language. If not, I will have to manage and learn it.




The keyboard distribution is an operating system configuration. I don't use Windows so i can't tell you the exact steps to make, i can just suggest you to google something like windows change keyboard distribution.

You could also try the old fashion way, press shift or alt gr and then smash every single key until the symbol appears.

Yeah, my Win config is correct. Is just behaving in another language inside de Console. I will figure it out. Thank you anyway :)

Then it is probably a bug in Hyper. I can't think of a reason why a terminal app uses a diferent keyboard configuration from the OS.

I found a couple of open issues in github that might be related.

If you find a solution please share it.
