    Lightbulb Keyboard button "Alt GR" what does it stand for ??

    Hi All

    I am using a HP Computer and next to the space bar on the " ALT" button instead of "ALT" its mentioned as "Alt GR". Can anyone tell me what does "Alt Gr" mean ??

    The function and usage of AltGr vary according to the exact keyboard layout, which in turn varies according to both the locale and the operating system.
    See for a variety of meanings such as Alternative Graphic, Alternate Graphic and others. On an English keyboard it often has the same effect as CTRL + ALT depressed at the same time.
