Sometimes, when a key is mentioned, the key is shown with a box surrounding it. I don't know how to do that.

Could someone please help?

    Welcome to Super User (and Stack Exchange)! A hopefully-handy-tip -- If you want to see how something was formatted, you can simply hit the Edit link that you'll find under any post. Even as a new (or even anonymous) user, you have the ability to look at the original Markdown that was used to create the formatting. Commented Feb 10, 2023 at 16:16

Like This?

Enclose the letter in <kbd> and </kbd>

Also works with suitably sized images
