The key location on the keyboard can vary (specially on small laptops) .. but on the en_GB keyboard layout it's pretty much always

Shift+\



Dunno if that's different on say en_US layouts

Looks like you have a US (American English) keyboard/layout.

Do the key markings match the key as typed .. or are you accidentally using the en_US layout on an en_GB keyboard ?
