The shortcut to use a New Command Window (SQL) is Ctrl+Tilde (~). See attached picture.
Is this presently working ? On a Querty keyboard ? On a Azerty keyboard ?
I am using a AZERTY keyboard. In order to produce a Tilde on a Azerty-keyboard I need to press Ctrl+AltGr+Tilde ? Thanks in advance for any guidance what to press to start a New Command Window (SQL) with a Azerty-keyboard.
It works as advertised for me on a QUERTY keyboard -- I have to disable "ditto" (a keyboard utility) first, which also uses that key combination to activate.
There's information here but I sense you may have already explored it -- it's not clear to me if you can just send a `, or if it is waiting for a second character so you get something like "ñ":
With my Belgian Azerty keyboard I need to press AltGr+"=" but then it is waiting for a second character in order get a tilde above the second character .
I am wondering what functional keyboard shortcut I could use to launch this New Command Window (SQL) with a Belgian Azerty keyboard.
Maybe "SharpKeys" would be able to produce it.
Also see below, an interactive diagram where it is called a dead key to be used with a, n, and o.
In my Estonian keyboard I have to click Ctrl+ü. The key for ü is next to p on the right. You can try the key next to p on your keyboard, but if it is a dead key it probably won't work.

Thank you all for the responses.
Just to be specific if so needed : I know how to produce a tilde with my Belgian Azerty keyboard.
What I am looking for is the correct keyboard shortcut (for my keyboard) to launch the New Command Window (SQL) with M9 (as shown in the initial image attached above Tilde.png) .
OK, I was heading slightly wrong direction (with overview+scancodes)
Looking at US keyboard, I believe for New Command Window we must press Ctrl+OEM_3 (the virtual-key) http://kbdlayout.info/kbdus/overview+virtualkeys
on Belgian Azerty keyboard OEM_3 is next to m.

Thank you Riivo. Spot on ! How did you find ?
Damn, I was late. Yes, we use VK_OEM_3 (with Ctrl). In the US keyboard layout this key has ~ and `, in other layouts it has other things. This is the only OEM key we are currently using, everything else is either a number, or a letter, or a common key like VK_RETURN.
