In Excel, I often use CTRL + ; to enter the current date. Is there an equivalent shortcut in Google Spreadsheets that works for international keyboards like Belgium-Dutch (nl-BE)?


This must be a bug in Google. I have to use CTRL + $ for some reason (the language of my keyboard is not en-US?). Google itself doesn't mention this anywhere.

Solution was found here in the last comment.

For Spanish Latin American keyboard layout:

  • Insert current time
    Ctrl + Shift + ´
  • Insert current date
    Ctrl + ´
  • Insert current date and time
    Ctrl + Alt + Shift + ´
