Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

A simple template that makes it easier to see that a keyboard key is involved.

Usage[edit]

{{Key press|key|border style}}

  • key is the literal name of the key to be pressed. For F4, for example, the syntax is {{Key press|F4}}. This results in the following: F4
  • HTML character entities are allowed. For example, to display the multiplication symbol, this works: {{Key press|×}} and results in ×.
  • To display a pressed key, add inset border style like this: {{Key press|F4|inset}} and the key will appear to be pressed: F4.
  • The key and border parameters can be reversed, but then their names need to be specified: {{Key press|border=inset|key=F4}} will become F4
  • Forgetting to specify a key will default to the equals sign: {{Key press}} becomes =.

Common keys[edit]

For ease of use and consistency throughout pages, the code for some common multi-letter keys is provided here, ready to be copied and pasted into articles. Symbols rely on UTF-8 support by the browser and a font that contains the glyph, so for best compatibility, the text-only version of the code can be recommended for use in most articles. Not every key has a corresponding symbol.
