So after putting in some effort, I found out that "mayús" was shift.

Likewise I was wo wondering if there is a list of keyboard keys along with the spanish version.

Or do I have to go at it one by one?

The easiest way is to compare a picture of the Spanish keyboard layout from Wikipedia with an English keyboard. In particular:

  • Esc, Alt, Alt Gr, Tab do not change name
  • Retroceso or Retr: Backspace
  • Intro or Introducir or Entrar: Enter
  • Control: Ctrl
  • Mayús: Shift
  • Bloq Mayús: Caps Lock
  • Bloq Num: Num Lock
  • Bloq Despl: Scroll Lock
  • ImpPnt/PetSis or Imp Pant/Pet Sis: Print Screen/SysRq
  • Pausa/Inter: Pause/Break
  • Ins or Insert: Insert
  • Supr: Delete
  • Inicio: Home
  • Fin: End
  • RePág: Page Up
  • AvPág: Page Down.

  • I added pictures of the Windows On-Screen Keyboard. If you feel they do not help please remove them or let me know and I will remove them.

  • The pictures do not show certain keys that have different meanings. In particular, I notice that the the key for generating an enye is not labelled as such. This is the key to the right of the letter L. looks like this ñ Commented Jul 30, 2021 at 10:54
  • @WalterMitty it seems like a UK keyboard layout with translated key names. That probably makes the association of key names in Spanish and English easier for the purpose of this question though...

  • @WalterMitty You are right. In Win10 you can type multiple languages on the same keyboard. I have a US keyboard but as Colombian I usually type in Spanish, so the image I added is of the same keyboard layout but set up for either English or Spanish.
